About the CWPP
The Coal Creek Canyon Fire Protection District (CCCFPD or District) 2008 Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is being updated this year. Much data on fire risk has already been gathered by The Ember Alliance and will be shared at a series of four Focus Group meetings to be held at the local fire stations.
The District respectfully asks you to become involved in the process. Voicing your concerns and insights is vital to producing a CWPP that addresses the fire mitigation needs of the CCCFPD and all CCC residents.
The District is divided into 15 separate communities, called Plan Units, which will be evaluated in the new CWPP using scientific fire behavior modeling and risk analysis. The CWPP will outline step-by-step, prioritized fire mitigation recommendations for each community. To learn more, the residents of each Plan Unit may attend an informational Focus Group meeting at their local fire station.
Focus Groups will be held in June at each District Fire Station
