What it's about:
With wildfires on the rise and more and more cities expanding into what is known as the "wildland-urban interface" (where forests and human communities meet), cities are increasingly recognising the need to plan for wildfire.
One approach to planning for wildfire is creating a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).
Here's a story about the collaboration that generated Salt Lake City's CWPP. Learn how they went from planning to finalisation to action in less than a year.
Why it's noteworthy:
The author describes what made the planning process work - think partnerships and commitment - and what actions the plan has already catalysed.
Her reflections offer a useful model for others interested in community wildfire planning. Furthermore, the post identifies a template plan that could be modified for CWPPs in other areas.
