What’s Next for the SRA/LRA Mapping Process?
March 9, 2023
The process to update the Fire Hazard Severity Zones (FHSZ) is still underway with deadlines in place to finalize State and Local Area Responsibilities. We are currently in the public comment period phase with comments due April 4th of this year. Then, the map will show the State Responsibility Areas followed by the Local Responsibility Areas County by County. Local agencies will need to adopt ordinance and provide a copy to the State Board of Forestry and Fire Protection within 30 days after adoption.
A detailed timeline is available via CalFire. Further information can be found here: https://osfm.fire.ca.gov/divisions/community-wildfire-preparedness-and-mitigation/wildfire-preparedness/fire-hazard-severity-zones/.
