Fire Planning Success Stories

By placing the emphasis on what needs to be done long before a fire starts, the California Fire Plan looks to reduce fire fighting costs and property losses, increase firefighter safety, and contribute to ecosystem health. Known as "pre-fire" management such actions as prescribed fires, fuel breaks, defensible space around homes, forest management, and fire safe landscaping are proven methods of reducing wildfire destruction. It is important for Californians living in the State's wildland areas to understand the need for pre-fire activities. During each of the fires listed here, pre-fire actions played roles in reducing the destruction and government cost, and increasing safety for firefighters.
