Description: Summary: The goal of this mapping effort is to create more accurate fire hazard zone designations such that mitigation strategies are implemented in areas where hazards warrant these investments. The fire hazard zones will provide specific designation for application of defensible space and building standards consistent with known mechanisms of fire risk to people, property, and natural resources. This specific dataset provides the DRAFT Very High zones within LRA, for the purposes of review and comment by local jurisdictions. Description PRC 4201 - 4204 and Govt. Code 51175-89 direct the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) to map areas of significant fire hazards based on fuels, terrain, weather, and other relevant factors. These zones, referred to as Fire Hazard Severity Zones (FHSZ), define the application of various mitigation strategies to reduce risk associated with wildland fires. CAL FIRE is remapping Fire Hazard Severity Zones (FHSZ) for State Responsibility Areas (SRA) and Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones (VHFHSZ) in Local Responsibility Areas (LRA) to provide updated map zones, based on new data, science, and technology. This specific dataset provides DRAFT boundaries for Very High FHSZs within LRA lands. Since these zones were the result of a model that considers influence of fire behavior and embers from adjacent lands, zones for SRA and FRA lands are included to assist in understanding the hazard zoning on LRA lands. Draft maps are available at: More information about the project can be found at: Use limitations This dataset DOES NOT define final adopted Very High zones in LRA - users are cautioned to obtain the adopted zone data when it becomes available for actual decisions related to zones.

Copyright Text: CAL FIRE recoginzes the important contribution of various local government entities that contributed data, maps, and comments that were critical components of the FHSZ mapping process.
