The County of Humboldt is seeking to contract with one or more Wildfire Mitigation Coordinators to join County staff as part of a grant-funded Coordination Team tasked with increasing collaboration, capacity, and partnerships among local wildfire mitigation groups in service of the Humboldt County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).
The Coordination Team will focus on supporting local groups, such as neighborhood fire safe councils and Firewise communities; proliferating fire-wise messages and educational resources; and enhancing the basic functions of the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council, including implementation of the CWPP.
A Request for Proposals is open until January 31, 2022 for one or more limited-term, contracted positions. Work is expected to begin March 2022 and continue through March 31, 2023.
For more information about the position, please view the Request for Proposals at humboldtgov.org/firesafecouncil. Funding for the Coordination Team is made possible by a 2021 grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection as part of the California Climate Investments Program, through the California Fire Safe Council.
