Wildfire Plans & Maps

Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) assists the SRD with reducing and assessing the risk of wildfire to communities in the region.

The purpose of a CWPP is:

  • to identify the wildfire risks within and surrounding a community
  • to describe the potential consequences if a wildfire was to impact the community
  • to examine possible ways to reduce the wildfire

A CWPP has two major components: reporting and maps. The reporting component details with the community, the goals of the plan, and assessed wildfire risks. The maps will outline the community, land ownership, hazards and treatment areas.
