ABSTRACT

Innovative Practice: Community Resilience: Nevada's Community Wildfire Protection Plans   [open pdf - 374KB]

"The Nevada Division of Forestry (NDF) led an interagency effort to develop Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) in all 17 counties. The NDF encouraged communities within the wildland-urban interface--the zone of transition between human developments and wildland/vegetation--to create plans that address wildfire response, mitigate hazards, and enhance community preparedness. As a result, all of Nevada's counties developed plans that provide communities with a prioritized list of hazards and step-by-step recommendations to protect people, infrastructure, and resources from wildfires."
