What is the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)?
The residents of Rolling Hills, the City of Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Community Association (RHCA), Los Angeles County Fire Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff Department worked together throughout 2019 to formulate a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) for the City.
The CWPP is an action plan to implement specific wildfire mitigation measures to address the community’s greatest risks. Residents were offered to voice their opinions on wildfire threats to lives, homes and community and were encouraged to participate in the Wildfire Mitigation Survey in October 2019. The results of the survey are available Wildfire Mitigation Survey.
The CWPP is designed to be a living document and begins with the tool box of mitigation measures identified for Rolling Hills including potential evacuation scenarios. Many mitigation strategies were recommended and prioritized by Carol Rice, Fire Fuel Consultant, with the highest values being placed on:
- life safety;
- structural protection;
- natural resources and habitat.
Finally, the timeline for the action plan spans for the next three fiscal years and concludes with a schedule for periodic evaluation of the effectiveness of actions performed and updates to the plan. Review the latest version of the Community Wildfire Protection Plan.
