Local Wildfire Mitigation

In response to the Healthy Forest Restoration Act (HFRA) in 2003, Congress directed Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) communities to prepare a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). The CWPP is a strategic plan that identifies wildland fire hazards in the district and outlines prioritized mitigation recommendations.

The CWPP can be a significant educational tool. It provides ideas, recommendations and guidelines for creating defensible space around the house and reducing structural ignitability through home improvement and maintenance. Our initial CWPP was finished in 2008, and the current version was updated in 2013 to reflect changes in the district due to the Fourmile Canyon Fire and to account for the Fourmile Canyon Fire Findings.
This document reflects the work of many dedicated community volunteers.

Please be fire savy with information on this CWPP fire prevention flier.

Descending order


The CWPP projects are chosen and administered by the CWPP Committee, a group made up of community volunteers and open to all residents. The committee meets annually in the winter to outline that year's projects. SFPD has a dedicated tax that helps fund mitigation projects in the district, and the committee uses that money to leverage matching grants whenever possible.
