Action Plan Planning Process
DFSC, community members and agency partners will be working during 2015-2016 to develop an Action Plan to make the Clayton Morgan Territory area more fire safe. The planning process will consist of 4 steps as established in the Overview.
Step 1: Project Kickoff. During this first step we will work with local fire departments, CAL FIRE, local government, agencies, as well as other groups, to identify additional stakeholders and interested parties. We will review existing wildfire assessments and community information to develop a community base map. We will also gather information for a pre-response plan and preliminary project ideas. Summaries of our meetings are provided here:

Step 2: Project Identification. DFSC received a grant from the CAL FIRE SRA Fire Prevention Fund to provide $100,000 cost share funding for community hazardous fuel reduction and chipping projects, as well as fire road maintenance. The second step of the process will be to identify both short and long-term projects.
An application for community cost share funding for hazardous fuel reduction projects can be downloaded here. Contact us if you have questions or suggestions about a potential project.
Step 3: Action Plan Development. A key product of the planning process will be an action plan identifying recommendations for additional projects or wildfire prevention programs. Roles, responsibilities, funding needs and timetables will be established for highest priority projects. An assessment strategy will also be developed to maintain effectiveness of the action plan over the longer term.
Step 4: Finalize the Action Plan. The final Action Plan will become an appendix to the Contra Costa Community Wildfire Protection Plan. It will be used to coordinate future projects and obtain additional grant funding.
