Community Wildfire Protection Plan

The 2019 Humboldt County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is the culmination of two years of collaboration among the members of the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council (HCFSC). The final draft was certified by the Board of Supervisors, CAL FIRE, and Humboldt County Fire Chiefs’ Association.

Fire Safe Council Responsibilities

The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors (Board) formed the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council (FSC) in 2002. Periodically, the Board passes a resolution to renew the FSC, recognizing that community-based fire planning efforts assist residents in making their homes, neighborhoods, and communities fire safe; the resolution is updated periodically to allow for changes in membership. The members of the BOS continue to support the FSC so that it may oversee the maintenance and implementation of the Humboldt County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) and, when appropriate, to inform and make recommendations to the Board.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council is to:

  • Serve as a forum for the implementation of the CWPP.
  • Share fire-safety information.
  • Assess fire risk.
  • Promote community fire-safe planning and coordination.
  • Link fire-prevention programs.
  • Support the fire service and local FSCs.
