2018 has been a devastating wildfire year. With neighboring communities suffering such catastrophic losses, one cannot help but wonder if this could happen here in Humboldt County. The answer is yes, it can.      In 2002, after a destructive fire season, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors developed the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council (HCFSC). Their job was to prepare and implement a Master Fire Protection Plan, now known as the Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).  The goals of the plan are:

Wildfire Ignition Prevention: Reduce human caused wildfire ignitions

Wildfire Preparedness: Increase community resilience and adaptation to wildfire

Disaster Preparedness: Increase residents’ ability to effectively prepare for and survive wildfire disasters

Fire Protection: Support fire protection services for people, property, communities and natural resources

Restoration of Beneficial Fire: Restore beneficial fire at the landscape scale.

Integrated Planning: Maximize integration of planning efforts to improve community and ecosystem resilience to wildfire.

The HCFSC is asking for your help by reviewing the current CWPP and giving your feedback. The date for public review and comments has been extended to October 12, 2018 for most areas of Humboldt County. For the  Eel, Mad-Van Duzen, Mattole-Lost Coast, Southern Humboldt and Avenue of the Giants Units, the deadline is October 19, 2018.

Please help by sharing this information with your neighbors and friends. This plan can help everyone in Humboldt County.

  • Come on y’all… I can’t believe are no comments on this one. Clear underbrush AKA ladder fuels, keep a water tank and a pump and a hose dedicated for fire only, fire resistant coatings on wooden Shake roofs.

  • Sustainable Practice

    I heard of a program where mountain goats were being “rented” for a time period to cut underbrush, to abate fuel. Has anyone started or have a business where this would be made available in our community?

  • 1. “Wildfire Ignition Prevention: Reduce human caused wildfire ignitions”.
    Agenda 21 language. (literally means people not allowed to live in rural areas).
    2. “Wildfire Preparedness: Increase community resilience and adaptation to wildfire”.
    Agenda 21 language. (literally means the fires will continue until all people are locked up in stack and pack apartments in designated areas).
    3. “Disaster Preparedness: Increase residents’ ability to effectively prepare for and survive wildfire disasters”. Agenda 21 language. (literally means prepare to pack it up people if you want to survive instead of thrive.)
    4. “Fire Protection: Support fire protection services for people, property, communities and natural resources.” Agenda 21 language (literally means protecting fires by blaming everything on the citizens).
    5. “Restoration of Beneficial Fire: Restore beneficial fire at the landscape scale.” Agenda 21 language. (literally does not say who or what the beneficial fires benefit).
    6. “Integrated Planning: Maximize integration of planning efforts to improve community and ecosystem resilience to wildfire.”. Agenda 21 language. (literally means to improve the ecosystem by removing the people).

    Delphi Technique being used to trick the citizens.
