Fire Hazard Responsibility Areas

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) recommendations in Local Responsibility Areas (LRA) to provide updated map zones, based on new data, science, and technology. This specific dataset provides FHSZs within SRA lands only, and represents the proposed zones, subject to changes based on local hearings. A subsequent dataset release will provide the actual adopted zones. Maps of the proposed zones in SRA are available at: http://frap.cdf.ca.gov/projects/hazard/fhz.html More information about the project can be found at: http://frap.cdf.ca.gov/projects/hazard/hazard.html
