The public comment period has closed and we anticipate the Final CWPP will be completed (signed) and ready for public distribution at the end of February.
What is a CWPP?
A Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is a collaborative planning document that helps communities reduce wildfire risk. Outlined by the 2003 Healthy Forest Restoration Act, CWPPs are in use across the country and at a variety of scales. Signed by the local fire district, government and state forestry agency, CWPPs represent an opportunity for diverse community stakeholders to meaningfully engage in their local wildfire risk reduction actions .
In 2022, the Tuolumne Fire Safe Council received a grant award from the CAL FIRE Fire Prevention Grants Program to complete a county-wide CWPP update. This website provides information to the public on the CWPP process and updates on the work in progress.
California is the most wildfire-prone state in the United States.
