Please join the countywide wildfire protection efforts and share your valuable input on the 2023 Solano County CWPP. The draft CWPP is anticipated to be released for public review in August 2023. The public review period will last two weeks and will be advertised on this page. Please be sure to check out the Solano County website frequently for any updates!
Solano County has contracted SWCA Environmental Consultants to develop the 2023 Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). A CWPP is a plan designed to identify and mitigate wildfire hazards to communities and infrastructure located in the wildland-urban interface (WUI; an area located between wildland and human development). The CWPP makes recommendations for hazardous fuels reduction, public outreach and education, structural ignitability reduction, and fire response capacity.
The development of the Solano County CWPP is founded in facilitated collaboration among local, state, and federal officials, as well as non-governmental stakeholders. The 2023 CWPP reviews, verifies, and/or identifies potential new priority areas where mitigation measures are needed to protect irreplaceable life, property, and critical infrastructure in the County, from wildfire.
A CWPP is designed to assist the County and landowners in ensuring that a future catastrophic wildfire is avoided or mitigated by assessing areas at risk and recommending measures to decrease those risks. Moreover, the Planning Team is working together to develop the CWPP to ensure the plan is applicable to the communities it is designed to serve. The goal is that all recommended projects are designed to greatly reduce wildfire risk to residents and ensure that communities can live safely in this fire-prone environment. All are invited to take our short community survey (visit https://forms.office.com/r/g2AWJrBFcP) so you can tell the Planning Team directly what your concerns are within the community.
The CWPP will be a guiding document for fire and emergency managers, as well as agencies who manage land within the County. The CWPP is designed to serve County residents, and we encourage your interest and engagement in the process.
