QUICK INFO

 

Wildland

CWPP is in review, updates to come.

The Santa Fe County Fire Department is developing a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) update. A CWPP is used to identify and mitigate wildfire hazards to communities. In 2008, Santa Fe County completed its first CWPP, a process that has facilitated valuable collaboration among stakeholders. The 2020 CWPP will build on these collaborative efforts to reduce wildfire risk by reviewing and identifying new priority areas for wildfire protection efforts. Due to restrictions on public gatherings as a result of Covid-19, the County has chosen to use an interactive website, or story map, as the primary communication tool to gather community input on the draft plan. The Story Map can be found at the following path. Please use the provided survey to leave your comments. 

Readiness and Response

The responsibilities of the Wildland Division are broken down into two main categories. The first responsibility of the Wildland Division is wildland fire suppression readiness and response. This responsibility includes coordinating the wildland training, overseeing equipment and the equipment cache, managing the Wildland Operations Plan, the Resource Mobilization plan, and all National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) certifications for regional and district staff.

Public Education

The second responsibility is as important as the first; reducing the threat of a catastrophic wildland fire in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) through prevention efforts like public education and hazardous fuels mitigation. The Wildland Division is responsible for coordinating Firewise activities with communities, Ready Set Go Programs, updating the 2008 Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP), coordinating fuel reduction projects in high priority areas, grant research, managing the wildland fuel crew, and a Santa Fe County WUI Hazard Homeowner Assessment Project.
