Community Wildfire Protection Plans
Community Wildfire Protection Plans are the result of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003 which, as part of an historical bipartisan legislative effort, called for communities to collaborate with state and local agencies to determine priorities for hazardous fuels reduction projects on federal and private lands in the wildland-urban interface (WUI).
It also allows communities to develop and list priorities that affect their ability to survive a wildland fire in their area. Egress, education and water availability are some of the other issues that communities may address in their plans.
Across Central Oregon, each community has been collaborating with forest and fire management agencies to identify risks and outline strategies to address them. Below is a link to the list of available CWPPs and their corresponding maps.
