Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)

"Creating a fire-adapted and resilient El Dorado County through collaboration and coordination"

El Dorado County is Updating the 

Western El Dorado County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)

There are currently two initiatives to update the Community Wildfire Protection Plans in El Dorado County.  The CWPP for the Tahoe Basin is currently under revision, and updates can be found here.  

The remainder of El Dorado County is covered by the Western El Dorado County CWPP.  The El Dorado County Office of Wildfire Preparedness and Resilience is updating the current CWPP to eliminate geographic gaps, validate crucial infrastructure at risk, address omissions or conflicts related to other planning documents, compliment the Tahoe Basin CWPP initiatives, and meet the requirements of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act.  The Western El Dorado County CWPP is intended to be a dynamic document initiated at a grass roots level that engages local fire safe councils, Firewise Communities, and other locally led fire-safe initiatives.

El Dorado County is seeking proposals from qualified consultants who have experience and specialize in preparing community wildfire protection plans.  The Request for Proposal, which includes the scope of work for the project, can be found at:

PlanetBids Vendor Portal - Final filing date 11/3/2023, 3:00pm

The CWPP update is targeted for completion by the end of 2024.  Additional information will be posted here as the workplan and timeframe are developed.
