Fire Safe Council granted Fire Agency approval for University City’s first Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)


From University City Fire Safe Council president Diane Ahern: The University City Fire Safe Council is pleased and proud to announce that the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) has been granted final approval from the SD Fire-Rescue Department, the San Diego County Fire Safe Council, San Diego County Fire, and CAL FIRE. 

The volunteers of the Fire Safe Council first came together in September 2019 as part of a network of community Fire Safe Councils in San Diego County and throughout the state of California. The role of a Fire Safe Council is to provide education and outreach to prevent and prepare for fire so that all are well-protected from the threats of structure and wildfire.

Despite COVID restrictions which have limited our community outreach, the Fire Safe Council has provided public information items at many community meetings, hosted public Zoom meetings, and submitted monthly fire prevention and preparation articles for the print University City News newsletter and social media. At the same time, our Council was working to develop and create the first Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) for University City. Take a look at University City Final 2021 CWPP

The Community Wildfire Protection Plan is a blueprint for fire prevention and preparedness at the neighborhood level. The CWPP organizes our community’s efforts to protect our community from both structure and wild fires, and empowers residents and community members to move in a cohesive, common direction to prevent and prepare for fire.

The Fire Safe Council developed the Community Wildfire Protection Plan collaboratively with input from residents and community members, the City of San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and federal, state, county, and City of San Diego management agencies.

The Fire Safe Council thanks representatives from the agencies and community groups who made contributions to the CWPP and supported our efforts.
