Board of Forestry and Fire Protection approves 2010 California Strategic Fire Plan

SACRAMENTO – The Board of Forestry and Fire Protection last week voted unanimously to approve the 2010 Strategic Fire Plan.


The plan is the result of a cooperative effort by both the board and the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection – or Cal Fire – to establish the levels of statewide fire protection services for California’s State Responsibility Area (SRA) lands.


A map included in the plan show Lake County has being in the “very high” zone for fire hazard severity.

 

“This collaborative effort ultimately benefits the residents of this state,” said Board Chairman Stan Dixon. “It is incumbent upon state government to take constructive action on significant issues of concern that affect the property and livelihoods of Californians.”

 

“The importance of developing a single, comprehensive strategic fire plan in concert with the Board was clear to me from the beginning,” said Chief Del Walter, director of Cal Fire. “That is why I requested three seats on the steering committee to represent Fire Protection, Resource Management Programs and the Office of the State Fire Marshal. I am very pleased with the effort and accomplishments of all who participated in producing this document.”

 

This is the first statewide fire plan developed in concert between the board and Cal Fire.


This new plan recognizes that fire will occur in California and works to answer the question of “how do we utilize and live with that risk of wildfire?”
