Fire Assessment Identifies College Station Areas Vulnerable to Wildfires

First responders in College Station may be better equipped to fight wildfires thanks in part to a comprehensive plan that addresses the hazards.

The Texas A&M Forest Service and the College Station Fire Department presented a 'Community Wildfire Protection Plan' or CWPP at tonight's council meeting.

The group worked together for nearly two years with local, state, and federal authorities, to put together the 200 page document.

The plan identifies six areas in College Station that are vulnerable to wildfires and shows how to mitigate those risks. The purpose of the CWPP is to provide for the safety of residents and emergency personal, limit number of number of homes destroyed by wildfire, promote and maintain healthy ecosytems and educate about wildfire prevention.">

The document addresses fire hazards for wildland areas and neighborhoods in College Station.
