A Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is a way for communities to address their wildfire risk by evaluating wildfire risks and coming up with options for mitigating those risks. Gila County is in the process of updating the Southern 2021 CWPP and is seeking input from residents about your concerns and ideas for how we can improve the plan and make our community more resilient to wildfire.

The Gila County Southern CWPP was orginally developed in 2010, in response to the Healthy Forests Restoration Act (HFRA) of 2003 for at risk cities and communities in Southern Gila County. As of 2015 the objective was to identify any and all at risk communities or areas that were not identified in the initial wildfire community assessment, document changes in community hazards and values at risk, recognize community activities related to reducing the threat of wildfires and efforts to improve public and firefighter safety.
