Community Wildfire Protection Plan Update - Final Draft

The 2019 CWPP is the culmination of two years of collaboration among the members of the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council (HCFSC). In addition to the broad range of fire protection and prevention entities represented by the HCFSC, the CWPP update process included extensive communication and coordination with local fire departments and fire safe councils, state and federal agencies, personnel from various county departments, and the general public. 

This is the third edition of the CWPP. Since 2006, the CWPP has served as the guiding document for the work of the HCFSC and has been an excellent tool for planning and securing funding for numerous projects that have helped local residents and community groups prepare for the impacts of wildfire. Keeping this plan current and actionable is more important than ever as California faces unprecedented losses of life, property, and ecological values to wildfire.

2019 Living with Wildfire Magazine

Under the guidance of the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council, the County of Humboldt, CAL FIRE, Six Rivers National Forest, Hoopa Fire Department, Yurok Tribe Wildland Fire Program, and Del Norte Fire Safe Council pooled their resources to produce the latest Living with Wildfire in Northwestern California. Please take a look and see what you can learn about being prepared for wildfire.
