DESCRIPTION: Community Wildfire Protection Plan
CLIENT: City of Surrey
YEAR:  2013

Diamond Head prepared a community wildfire management plan for the City's natural areas and parks. This plan provided background review of the fire environment, identified the level of wildfire risk and made recommendations on how to prescribe and prioritize treatments to reduce this risk.

An evaluation includes the risk (fire behavior potential) and consequence (human lives, structures and natural features) of a wildfire occurrence. Community planning and design includes not only the treatment of adjacent vegetation but also access, water sources and standards for construction and landscaping. Recommendations were also made to reduce wildfire threat through wildfire preparedness, public education and interagency co-operation.
