The Wildfire Hazard Reduction and Resource Management Plan

The Wildfire Hazard Reduction and Resource Management Plan (Plan) provides sound, long-term strategies for reducing fuel loads and managing vegetation within the East Bay Regional Park District's (EBRPD's) Study Area parks, to minimize the risk of Diablo winddriven catastrophic wildfire along the wildland-urban interface while ensuring the protection and enhancement of ecological values and resources within EBRPD's jurisdiction.

The Plan is consistent with the District's Master Plan and builds upon the District's ongoing fuels management activities, as well as the 1982 Blue Ribbon Report, the 1995 Fire Hazard Mitigation Program & Fuel Management Plan for the East Bay Hills (1995 Plan), and other District plans and policies.
