Angwin Project History

The Angwin Community Wildfire Protection Plan (ACWPP) identifies community hazard reduction projects based on a professional community risk assessment sponsored by Napa Communities Firewise Foundation (NCFF) in 2015.  Projects are listed in the ACWPP.  Implementation of the identified projects is based on Angwin Fire Safe Council volunteer members annually submitting applications to various grant funding sources to address these projects for the community.  

Working collaboratively PUC, AFSC and NCFF obtained 2020 grant funding for a forest restoration/fire mitigation project in the PUC Forest. This project will build upon last year’s shaded fuel break project, which was called an “exemplary project for Napa County and the entire state” by California State Senator Bill Dodd. The project will be executed by the Sonoma Ecology Center, and will entail 32 acres of hand crew thinning. 

AFSC contributed 2019 grant funding towards the completion of the Pacific Union College Shaded Fuel Break, a project of considerable importance to the entire community of Angwin.

AFSC committed 2015-2018 grant funding to roadside fuel-load reduction.
