Community Wildfire Protection Plan

Benton County's Community Wildfire Protection Plan was adopted by the Board of Commissioners in June of 2009, following a year-long public review process that included agency collaboration, public workshops at various county locations and solicitation of public input.

In October of 2016, the CWPP Update was adopted by the Board of Commissioners.  This update was the result of a collaborative process involving agencies and individuals with expertise and experience in wildfire issues, and includes current new data, a description of major accomplishments, and emergent issues.  At the core of the completed Update is a  list of action items for accomplishment in the coming years.  If you'd like to learn more about wildfire in Benton County please contact Kevin Young, 541-766-0119, kevin.young@co.benton.or.us
