About the CWPP Focus Group Meetings
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 collected by The Ember Alliance. It will be shared at a series of four Focus Group meetings to be held at the four 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. Each of 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 Plan Unit. To learn more, the residents of each Plan Unit are urged to attend an informational Focus Group meeting at their local fire station.
At the Focus Groups you’ll learn about risk ratings specific to your community, including:
- Identification of evacuation routes which are currently nonsurvivable in the events of wildfire
- Community-wide fuels mitigation needed to protect homes, entire neighborhoods, and our volunteer firefighters
- Simple things which can be done in the Home Ignition Zone (HIZ) to give your home a fighting chance to survive a wildfire.
- Why and how your input will benefit the completed CWPP.
Focus Groups will be held on Thursday evenings in June at the four District Fire Stations
