Board of Supervisors Approves Countywide Community Wildfire Protection Plan
The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors met on May 9th and approved an update to the county’s Community Wildfire Protection Plan! Fire Safe Sonoma championed the first draft in 2015 and we are extremely happy with this updated version, along with the added online wildfire risk analysis tools.
A Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is one of the best tools we have to make progress in adapting our county to a wildfire-prone environment. The CWPP will contain hazard and risk analyses and, using a collaborative model, will suggest projects that can efficiently reduce the risk of loss of life, property loss, and environmental damage.

This update has been in development since 2020 and now we are ready for folks to put it to work.
