Public Input Needed for Santa Fe County Community Wildfire Protection Plan

The Santa Fe County Fire Department is still seeking public input for the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) update.  Current wildfire activity underscores how important public input is to these planning efforts. Due to restrictions on public gatherings as a result of Covid-19, the County has chosen to use an interactive website, or story map, as the primary tool to share information and gather input for the draft plan. Follow this link https://www.santafecountynm.gov/fire/wildland for the story map (click CWPP Draft). Please use the provided survey to leave your comments.

A CWPP is used to identify and mitigate wildfire hazards to communities. In 2008, Santa Fe County completed its first CWPP, which was partially updated in 2015, a process that has facilitated valuable collaboration among stakeholders. The 2020 CWPP will build on these collaborative efforts to reduce wildfire risk by reviewing and identifying new priority areas for wildfire protection efforts.  Your participation is critical this effort!
