Does the County have a wildfire plan?

The County has several hazard mitigation plans and a specific wildfire action plan.  The County’s master countywide Hazard Mitigation Plan was updated and approved by FEMA in 2018.  There are three current Community Wildfire Prevention Plans (CWPP) that cover general western county, Norther San Juan, and Truckee. The Office of Emergency Services developed a wildfire preparedness action plan that was presented to the Board of Supervisors in January 2019.   This plan outlines 15 action initiatives the County is pursuing from public education and outreach, evacuation planning, to emergency notifications.   OES recently hired a consultant to update the County’s Emergency Operation Plan’s annexs for Evacuations and Mass Causality.
