Description

In collaboration with local and tribal governments, emergency responders, and key stakeholders, the Mendocino Council of Governments (MCOG) conducted a Fire Vulnerability Assessment and Emergency Evacuation Preparedness Plan. MCOG used funds from an SB 1 Caltrans Adaptation Planning Grant to drive this project forward, in order to better prepare for wildfire emergencies that are likely to continue as a result of climate change. This effort identified areas and populations in the region most vulnerable to fire, assessed evacuation needs and evacuation routes, identified necessary improvements to the transportation networks for emergency access, established agency roles and responsibilities, developed communication strategies, and engaged and educated the public.
