Posted on January 31, 2019

Prevention is our first line of defense

The San Rafael Wildfire Prevention and Protection Action Plan outlines various goals to proactively and aggressively address the growing risks associated with wildfire. The draft Plan was presented to San Rafael City Council on January 22nd, 2019 by San Rafael Fire Chief Chris Gray and Emergency Manager Quinn Gardner.  An updated plan, including community feedback, will be brought to the City Council in March.

The primary objectives of the draft Plan include: ordinance changes to mitigate wildfire risk; additional staffing, funds, and resources to address hazards; expanded and new public outreach and education; expanded and new fuel reduction; expanded and new preparedness efforts; and improving and increasing vegetation management plans (VMPs).
