A new storymap for the St. Louis County Community Wildfire Protection Plan helps share knowledge about wildfire risk in Northern Minnesota and how a Community Wildfire Protection Plan can help protect your community from the worst of wildfire season.
A Community Wildfire Protection Plan, or a CWPP for short, is a community based plan developed collaboratively amongst community members and land management agencies to achieve a common goal. The main goal of a CWPP is to help a community be more wildfire resilient. CWPPs address a variety of issues, including wildfire response, hazardous fuels, community preparedness, and structure protection.
