Community Fire Planning

What is Community Fire Planning?
Our community has been fortunate to not have a large wildfire since 1973. For the Anchorage Wildfire Program to continue helping residents stay prepared in the coming years, AFD is coordinating the development of community wildfire protection plans (CWPPs). The Municipal-wide CWPP will document the updated strategic plan for wildland fire mitigation. A draft of this document is linked below. During the next two years, AFD staff will be working closely with community councils and neighborhoods to develop action plans that help residents prepare for a wildland fire, in addition to other disasters. Through coordination with the Emergency Operations Center, AFD supports the Emergency Watch program and links it to Firewise Communities USA. Pictured Right: 2003 Cedar Fire, California.
