RD Presses for Planning for Wildfire Preparedness and Evacuation


November 14, 2018


At Wednesday's Midcoast Community Council (MCC) meeting, Resist Density urged Council members and officials from Half Moon Bay and the County to initiate a coordinated and comprehensive plan for a potential wildfire on the San Mateo County coast. The recent devastating wildfires in Paradise and southern California raise serious questions about how to prepare for a coastal wildfire in San Mateo County. Currently no such plan exists, even though the entire coastal area is surrounded by Tier 2 (Elevated) and Tier 3 (Extreme) Fire Threat, according to the 2018 CPUC fire threat map.
