Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP)

The Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) is the area where homes are built near or among lands prone to wildland fire. These areas have become more popular for homeowners because of their privacy, natural beauty, recreational opportunities and affordable living. Developers are accommodating this influx by building neighborhoods inside these WUI areas. As a result, rural fire districts are fighting fire and often protecting homes and property within WUI areas. To assist in defending against wildfire, it is important that WUI communities develop a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).

A CWPP is a comprehensive plan developed by local citizens and state and federal agencies. These protection plans are based on the needs of the people in the community and can address issues such as wildfire response, hazard mitigation, community preparedness, structure protection or all of the above. Below are communities in Washington who have already completed Community Wildfire Protection Plans.
