Board of Directors Receives SMFD WUI Hazard & Risk Assessment Report.
At the Jul 22, 2020 Southern Marin Fire Protection District Board of Directors Meeting, Fire Marshal Fred Hilliard, and Todd Lando of XMR Consulting, presented the final Southern Marin Fire Protection District WUI Wildfire Hazard & Risk Assessment
Funded by a CAL FIRE Forestry Grant for Planning, Consultant Todd Lando was hired by the Southern Marin Fire Protection District to conduct a comprehensive hazard and risk analysis encompassing the District and City of Sausalito, which will be used to assist the District in determining how to best allocate fiscal resources as it seeks to reduce risks from the wildfire threat, especially in the WUI areas.
This assessment looks at current conditions and predicted trends and recommends sound long-term strategies for reducing structural ignitability, managing and reducing vegetation fuel loads on public lands and private property, and improving wildfire response and suppression capabilities within the boundaries of the Southern Marin Fire Protection District.
The Hazard and Risk Assessment is in many ways, modelled after the Marin County Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) and uses some of the data from the 2016 Report.
This Hazard & Risk Assessment is a significant milestone for the Fire District and can be viewed and downloaded at http://www.smfd.org/attachments/article/50070/2020%20SMFD%20Assessment%20FINAL%20web.pdf
