The City of Malibu is conducting an online survey to get community feedback as part of the development of the citywide Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).
Take the survey: www.MalibuCity.org/WildfirePlanSurvey
A CWPP is a community-based plan focused on identifying and addressing local hazards, risks and vulnerabilities from wildfire. It provides a roadmap of action items to help the community prevent, mitigate, respond to, and recover from wildfires. It may also help the City qualify for state and federal funding opportunities to ultimately implement the plan.
The survey will ensure that the CWPP addresses the unique characteristics, needs and values of the community. The survey will gather community input on how to become more resilient to wildfires as part of the development of the CWPP and enable those unable to attend the public workshops to give their input.
The development of this CWPP is defined in Title I of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HFRA), passed by Congress in 2003 and is funded through a CAL FIRE Community Fire Prevention Grant. Through the CAL FIRE grant, the City has commissioned a consulting firm to help complete the Plan.
A CWPP handbook and other information are posted on the City’s Wildfire and Fire Safety web page.
