We are working to update the Countywide Community Wildfire Protection Plan as well as help facilitate the creation of almost a dozen localized plans throughout Ventura County. A Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is a community-based plan focused on identifying and addressing local hazards and risks from wildfire. A CWPP determines what is at risk and provides a roadmap of actions for a community to address the wildfire threats.

Ventura County is currently in the process of updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP).
The overarching goal of the HMP is to inventory potential hazards that Ventura County is most vulnerable to, assess risks to the County’s community members, resources, buildings and critical facilities, and develop mitigation strategies to reduce the risk of exposure and allow a swift, equitable, and organized recovery should a disaster occur.
