CWPP Cover

The Carson City Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is a follow-up to the Community Risk Hazard Assessment/Community Wildfire Protection Plan prepared for Carson City in 2004-2005. Thirteen neighborhoods in the Carson City Consolidated Municipality (Carson City) have been delineated to provide more detailed analyses of community wildfire hazards and to update recommendations for reducing fuel hazards on public and private property and in the surrounding wildland-urban interface. Inventory and analyses methodology from the 2005 assessment were repeated in 2008 to allow for comparisons over time.

This CWPP is a collaborative effort between Carson City Fire Department, Nevada Division of Forestry, US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Carson City residents and incorporates recent planning efforts including the Multi-Jurisdictional Fuel Reduction and Wildfire Prevention Strategy. The Nevada Fire Safe Council has provided fundamental services to Carson City neighborhoods and facilitated homeowner participation in this effort.
