Lake County Fire Safe Council

Lake County evolved with fire, and will continue to shape the landscape. Residents are familiar with the potential repercussions and reality of wildfire; they understand that it is not a question of if a wildfire will occur, but rather when. The challenge is how to proactively prepare our homes, neighborhoods, communities, and wildlands for coexisting with wildfire instead of reacting to it. A Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) provides the information and tools residents and agencies need to reduce catastrophic wildfires, protect vital community assets, and live in better balance with the land. This CWPP is a strategic roadmap for Lake County citizens to successfully live with wildfire.

This document summarizes the process, information, and analysis for the Lake County CWPP. The Lake County CWPP identifies wildfire risks and hazards, and actions to reduce them. It also provides residents with a step-by-step guide on how to fire-safe their homes, communities, and wildlands, and how to best contend with an impending wildfire.
