Community Wildfire Protection Plan - Leaders Guide Supplement

This leaders guide supplement is a companion to the handbook and guidance for those who are considering implementing a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). It explains how to implement each of the steps needed to create an effective CWPP. Experience has shown that a CWPP has been completed in as little as 1 month and as long as 18 months.

We recommended the CWPP planning process occur in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Forming and norming
  • Phase 2: Risk assessment and priority setting
  • Phase 3: Plan, do/implement and evaluate

This process will help the fire chief or designated CWPP leader to engage community and policy leaders about the dangers and recommended mitigations when managing threats in the wildland. The planning process is designed for varying levels of sophistication and is practical and easy to use. This planning process should be developed in conjunction with other fire plans that exist.
