Integrating community wildfire protection plans and natural hazard mitigation plans

Date: June 23, 2017
Presenter(s): Brett Holt, Amanda Siok, Susan Cleverley, Tyre Holfeltz
Description: Natural Hazard Mitigation Plans (NHMP) and Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP) both benefit communities striving to reduce risk to natural hazards. Though one plan is focused on the wildfire hazard and other is focused on multi-natural hazards, the requirements of what needs to be in the plans have a lot of similarities. As a result of the similarities, communities have chosen to integrate the two planning documents. Joining us are representatives from Idaho Department of Lands and Idaho Emergency Management who have developed a process in Idaho to work with communities in plan integration, as well as a plan review process between the two state agencies. Join the FEMA Region 10 mitigation planning team as they highlight the benefits of integration, steps communities can take to integrate their current NHMP and CWPP and how the state agencies can work together to achieve plan integration.
