Part 4 – Planning Unit Action Plans

The Planning Unit Action Plans (PUAPs) are the individual, detailed plans for each of the 14 planning units. Each includes a brief introduction to the planning area, discusses its wildfire environment, community preparedness, wildfire protection capabilities, and evacuation issues and options, concluding with a list of priority proposed actions. The PUAPs are still in progress and will be posted as they are ready with their own deadline for review.
