Community Wildfire Preparedness

Community Wildfire Preparedness

Originally authorized and defined in the 2003 Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HFRA), Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP) represent the best opportunity available to address the challenges of the Wildland/Urban Interface in a way that brings comprehensive and locally supported solutions. Local CWPPs may address a variety of issues including wildfire response, hazard mitigation, community preparedness, structure protection, or a combination of issues.  Santa Barbara County Fire Department is committed to helping communities within the county to establish CWPPs in order to better serve the communites. The CWPPs within Santa Barbara County are found below.
