Whether your community needs assistance coordinating a Firewise program (which focuses on grass-roots organizing, neighborhood assessments of fire hazards, and public outreach and education), a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP), or a Fire Management Plan (FMP), SWCA’s fire experts can facilitate the planning process for everything from large-scale regional plans to plans for small communities.

With more than 10 years of experience completing CWPPs and FMPs throughout the West and Pacific Northwest, SWCA emphasizes collaborative planning among federal, state, and county government agencies, non-governmental agencies, and community members. SWCA has team members on staff who hold National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) qualifications and red cards, and all SWCA CWPPs meet the requirements of the 2003 Healthy Forest Restoration Act. SWCA also holds a National Park Service Blanket Purchase Agreement contract for completion of FMPs in support of Environmental Assessments across the United States.
