Board of Supervisors Meeting and Holiday Schedule 2021
Community Wildfire Protection Plan to Be Reviewed & Updated
CWPP Community Wildfire Protection Plan

We are revising and updating the 2004 Apache Communities Wildfire Protection Pan (CWPP) via a State Fire Assistance grant through the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management. We are revising the CWPP in accordance with requirements of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003 and through the use of enhanced fire behavior modeling, and analyses of current wildfire threat within the planning areas. The CWPP will assess communities at risk from wildland fire and revise recommendations to reduce wildland vegetative fuel and structural ignitibility. Recommendations within the revised CWPP, when implemented, are designed to reduce the threat wildfire through the fostering of ‘fire adapted’ communities, as more resilient and prepared to wildfire. 

Drawing of fire adapted communities

We invited a core team of agency resource specialists in wildland fire management to direct the analysis process. The core team will review and amend where necessary the Wildland Urban Interface boundary, determine wildland fire threat, effects and risk to communities, structure, and infrastructure within the wildland-urban interface. We encourages public comments and invites all residents to review the 2004 CWPP.

We encourage all Apache County residents to submit any questions or comments you may have about the Apache Communities Wildlife Protection Plan revision.
