Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) update

Wasco County's Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) was written in 2005 and has not been updated since.  In July 2020 the Wasco County Planning Department was awarded a FEMA grant to bring this plan up to date.  The project is being run by a Core Group consisting of members from local Fire Districts, the Oregon Department of Forestry, and County Planning.  

The Board of County Commissioners adopted the plan on December 7, 2022.  Staff will be finalizing the document in preparation for submittal to FEMA.  We anticipate final approval in early 2023.
