Community Wildfire Protection Plan

The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors (BOS), at their May 28th 2013 meeting, approved the 2013 Humboldt County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP), and certified that the new plan meets all the standards listed under the Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HFRA). A PowerPoint presentation helped demonstrate that the updated CWPP was developed through a collaborative process; it identifies and prioritizes areas for hazardous fuel reduction treatments; and it recommends measures that homeowners and communities within the county can take to reduce structural ignitability.

The FSC is continuing to build upon efforts to increase fire safety and is providing guidance for implementing specific measures listed in the plan. We hope that if you have input and/or skills that will be valuable to the success of this program you will contact us. Thanks to all of you who contributed to the plan development process!

The completed Humboldt County CWPP is provided below in sections. The documents are provided in PDF format to facilitate easy download. Some files were reduced in size to avoid overly large downloads. Consequently, the resolution quality of some maps was reduced. Click on a document name below to download it to your computer. Only document names in green have files associated with them to download.
