Community Wildfire Resiliency Plans Endorsed
Community Wildfire Resiliency Plans (CWRP) are the next generation of Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP). The CWPPs were introduced in 2004 as part of the Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative and served as the primary wildfire risk reduction planning mechanism for British Columbia communities. To better ensure that CWPPs consistently take a comprehensive approach toward wildfire, including risk reduction and resiliency measures, the BC Wildfire Service (BCWS) partnered with the BC FireSmart Committee to develop a new framework for Community Wildfire Resiliency Planning.
On June 28th the CWRPs for the RDN were endorsed by the RDN board and they now provide a framework for wildfire risk reduction and planning in the RDN for the next several years.
