Fire Safe Council seeks comments, feedback, and suggestions on Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)


The University City Fire Safe Council is seeking comments, feedback, and suggestions on the First Draft University City area Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). The CWPP is a blueprint for fire prevention and preparedness at the neighborhood level. The CWPP documents a community’s efforts to protect itself against both structure and wildfire, and empowers residents and community members to move in a cohesive, common direction.

The First Draft University City CWPP was developed by the University City Fire Safe Council in collaboration with community members and the City of San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and federal, state, county, and city emergency management agencies.

Comments and suggestions will be reviewed and considered by the Fire Safe Council when developing its final draft CWPP. The final draft will be reviewed and approved by the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department as well as the County and State Fire Safe Councils. A completed and approved CWPP will enable the University City Fire Safe Council to become eligible for grant funding for fire prevention and preparation activities.

The comment period for the draft CWPP is open now through April 30, 2021. To submit a comment, please read the CWPP and complete the form available on UCCA’s website at
