The 2024 Truckee Fire CWPP is a collaborative effort to enhance the safety and resilience of our community from uncharacteristic wildfires. This plan will develop an implementable and prioritized plan for risk-reduction activities and monitoring that promotes wildfire resilience in Truckee while working with partners.

As we enter this crucial public outreach phase, Truckee Fire seeks the active participation and engagement of Truckee community members. We invite all community members (full and part- time residents, property owners, individuals in the workforce) to review the draft CWPP and accompanying Story Map and provide invaluable feedback to ensure its effectiveness and alignment with the unique needs of our community.
