Itís time to update the Alameda County CWPP!
A Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is a collaboratively developed plan that identifies wildland fire hazards, prioritizes way to reduce those hazards and recommends measures for homeowners and communities to reduce ignitability of structures. DFSC will be working with community members and agency partners during 2020 to update the approved 2015 Plan.
See Planning Status for more detail.
There are two key reasons to develop a CWPP:
1. The plan is the opportunity to influence where and how federal agencies implement fuel reduction project on federal lands.
2. The plan establishes priority for funding of hazardous fuel reduction projects. Since the Contra Costa County Plan was initially adopted, DFSC was able to secure grants for a program to fund neighborhood projects create defensible space. To learn more about this program see Vegetation Removal.
We hope you can join us as we update the plan to reduce the impact of wildfire on our Alameda County communities. For a Schedule of Events contact: Cheryl Miller, DFSC Executive Coordinator. Email: DFSCMiller@comcast.net phone: 510-282-1265.
