CAL FIRE Exceeds Goal of 100,000 Acres Treated Ahead of Schedule

Transition to peak staffing for upcoming fire season also complete.

June 21, 2022 – CAL FIRE is making significant progress in their important contributions to California’s Wildfire and Forest Resilience Action Plan. Today they announced two significant accomplishments, starting with the news that they have already surpassed one of the plan’s Key Action items – to treat 100,000 acres by 2025.

According to current estimates, CAL FIRE has achieved 110,925 acres treated by using all fuels reduction methods, including prescribed fire. The work includes more than 600 fuel reduction projects.

Along with achieving this important milestone, in preparation for the upcoming wildfire season, CAL FIRE has also completed the transition to peak staffing across California. Peak staffing ensures all CAL FIRE stations are open and staffed 24 hours per day; response capabilities are enhanced; all aircraft are prepositioned and staffed; and crews are staffed, trained, and working.
