Community Wildfire Protection Plan

Community Wildfire Protection Plan

The Placer County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is the result of a community-wide planning effort that included extensive field data gathering, compilation of existing documents and geographic information system (GIS) data, and scientific analyses and recommendations designed to reduce the threat of wildfire-related damages to values at risk. Values at risk include people, property, ecological elements, and other human and intrinsic values within the project area. They are identified by inhabitants as important to the way of life in the study area, and are particularly susceptible to damage from wildfire. This document incorporates new and existing information relating to wildfire, which will be valuable to citizens, policy makers, and public agencies throughout western Placer County, California. Participants in this project include the Placer County Fires Safe Alliance (PCFSA), Foresthill/Iowa Hill Fire Safe Council (FSC), Greater Auburn Area (FSC), Greater Lincoln (FSC), Placer Sierra (FSC), California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), United States Forest Service (USFS), Placer County Resource Conservation District (PCRCD), other Placer County officials, numerous local fire departments and protection districts, and landowners.
