San Benito County Community Wildfire Protection Plan

The San Benito Fire Safe Council (SBFSC) is pleased to announce the release of the County Board of Supervisors approved 2010 San Benito County Community Wildfire Protection (SBCCWPP). This Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) serves as a mechanism for community input and identification of areas presenting high fire hazard risk as well as identification of potential projects intended to mitigate such risk. Further, the CWPP process is intended to provide the community a forum for identifying values at risk from wildfire, which may include people, property, natural resources, cultural values, economic interests, and infrastructure. The identification of these values at risk by the community strongly influences the potential wildfire hazard mitigation projects identified in this SBCCWPP.

This SBCCWPP covers San Benito County, California. The purpose of this collaboratively prepared SBCCWPP is to serve as a fire protection planning document that presents the County’s physical characteristics, landscape-scale fire hazard, rated fire hazard risk areas, the wildland urban interface (WUI), and designated fuel reduction projects and specifications for the area.
