COMMUNITY WILDFIRE PROTECTION PLAN (CWPP)

Wildfire sending smoke and embers over Malibu in 2007.

The Public Draft of the Community Wildfire Protection Plan* (CWPP) for California's Santa Monica Mountains is now available for public review. See below for information regarding upcoming public meetings.

This CWPP is written to be a resource guide for Santa Monica Mountains residents -- especially those organizing themselves under the Fire Safe Council banner. It contains extensive information on how to live with wildfire in the Santa Monica Mountains.

You can download the complete CWPP or individual chapters and appendices at the Public Draft CWPP website (click here). For a summary of what's in each of the CWPP chapters and appendices (click here).
