COMMUNITY WILDFIRE PROTECTION PLAN

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisor officially adopted the Maricopa County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (MCCWPP) on May 12, 2010. An update was completed to the original plan and adopted in September 2014. The goals of the MCCWPP are:

  • Improve fire prevention and suppression
  • Reduce hazardous vegetative fuels
  • Restore watershed health
  • Promote community involvement
  • Encourage economic development

The MCCWPP was developed in response to the Health Forest Restoration Act of 2003 (HFRA) for at-risks communities and unincorporated areas in Maricopa County. Maricopa County and 44 partner agencies and communities participated in this planning endeavor. The MCCWPP establishes a framework to help local governments, fire departments, districts and residents identify at-risk public and private lands to better protect those lands from severe wildfire threat. Additional functions of the MCCWPP are to improve fire prevention and suppression activities as well as to identify funding needs and opportunities to reduce the risk of wildland fire and enhance public and firefighter safety.

The MCCWPP Core Team Members are committed to continuous monitoring the progress of the recommended actions, priorities and goal. A Working Group made up of the Core Team Members will meet every six months to assess the progress of the Maricopa County CWPP.
