2020 Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) Update

FIRESafe MARIN is pleased to announce the countywide adoption of the updated 2020 Marin County Community Wildfire Protection Plan. This document builds on the 2016 CWPP and represents more than a decade of work by a diverse group of community stakeholders, fire officials, and wildfire science experts to produce a countywide approach to addressing wildfire risk and hazard, and provides a framework for current and future mitigation efforts.

Wildfire Hazard Mitigation Program

Central Marin Fire Department, along with The City of Larkspur and Town of Corte Madera and other Marin fire agencies, participate in the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA). 

With funding provided by MWPA and Marin Tax Measure C (2020), Central Marin Fire Department manages a comprehensive wildfire hazard mitigation program, including defensible space inspections and home-hardening evaluations, roadside and evacuation route vegetation management, hazard tree removals, resintial chipper programs, and other services to reduce wildfire hazards and manage community risk.

Defensible Space
