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 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.

2017 – 2019 Community Wildfire Protection Plan Update

The County of Humboldt and the FSC are in the process of updating the 2013 CWPP. This work began in early 2017 and will be completed in late winter, 2019. The comment period for the main body of the plan is closed and we are in the process of incorporating feedback. The 14 Unit Action Plans are on a different schedule than the rest of the plan with rolling review deadlines depending on the area of the county. Check the Public Review page for the unit plan that covers your area and let us know if you have feedback. 

Email Cybelle Immitt to be added to the stakeholder mailing list and to learn about how you can get involved.

  • Share fire-safety information.
