Burney Basin Fire Safe Council 

Community Wildfire Protection Plan

The Community Wildfire Prevention Plan (CWPP) is one of five projects developed by the Burney-Hat Creek Community Forest and Watershed Group. This community-based collaborative of private and public land managers share a vision for a sustainable future for the community and surrounding landscapes.

By collaborating, the group hopes to expedite the implementation of projects organize to identify “high risk” areas and educate the community about safe burning practices and forest stewardship. The Fall River Resource Conservation District led the charge through the facilitation of a public meeting and subsequent meetings to establish the Burney Fire Safe Council. Maps were developed to identify and

prioritize crucial human infrastructure, inhabited areas, high-risk areas, and natural/man-made barriers. An evacuation plan and map was provided during this stage.
