The Pre-Fire Management Section takes a proactive approach to fire prevention
through the systematic mitigation of risk in its communities.
Pre-Fire Management is comprised of three units:
Analysis and Mitigation Evaluation identifies our fire risks in
order to develop and/or modify effective risk intervention programs.
- Wildland Fire Defense Planning and Prevention works with
stakeholders and jurisdictions that manage large, open space areas to support
them in understanding fire risks and potential losses due to wildland fire, and
assist them in developing plans to mitigate risks and protect these lands.
Wildland Fire Prevention also oversees OCFA's READY! SET! GO! Program, which includes
the mitigation of wildland fire risks through a formalized fuel modification
inspection and enforcement program. This unit also monitors wildland and
vegetation conditions to identify potential hazards, ensuring communities in the
wildland urban interface areas are better protected from the risk of wildland
- Automation Support, through the utilization of technology,
creates and maintains efficiencies to ensure Fire Prevention utilizes
streamlined processes and procedures.
