This year, we will focus on the importance of Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) as a vehicle for incorporating the Fire Adapted Community recommendations into community design and maintenance, and taking communities to the next step in wildfire preparedness. CWPP planning assists communities in establishing priorities for protecting life, property and infrastructure. The plans can take a variety of forms, but at a minimum must:

  • Be developed collaboratively
  • Identify and prioritize areas and methods for hazardous fuel-reduction treatments
  • Recommend measures to reduce the ignitability of structures throughout the community

The Living With Fire program and its partners have prepared CWPP guides and templates to assist communities throughout Nevada into and through the CWPP process. The guides are now available and you can download them along with the appropriate template and Risk & Hazard Assessment below.  Please download and save them to your computer before proceeding.
