Santa Clara County Community Wildfire Protection Plan

In 2016, local and state agencies came together to create a countywide Community Wildfire Protection Plan to further mitigate wildfire risk in Santa Clara County. This strategic plan serves to protect life, property, and the environment by enabling local agencies to prioritize the placement and maintenance of shaded fuel breaks, fuel reduction programs, and public education campaigns. Many projects are active under this plan, including chipping programs, special needs assistance programs, defensible space, roadside fuels reduction, private landowner fuel breaks, defensible space inspection programs, and identification of evacuation routes.

*The wildland-urban interface is the area where human development meets undeveloped wildland or vegetative fuels.
