 Congratulations to Bryan, TX, and the Texas A&M Forest Service for making a difference in their local community by developing a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). Bryan is the first city in Texas to complete a plan. The measures taken by this innovative fire department will help keep the community safe from wildfire.

(Bryan Fire Chief Randy McGregor, Mayor Jason Bienski and Texas A&M Forest Service Director Tom Boggus pose with the city's Community Wildfire Protection Plan, approved for implementation at the City Council's June 11 meeting.)
Check it out the Bryan Community Wildfire Protection Plan. We encourage fire managers to adapt the plan to meet local area needs. (This document is large and takes a while to download.)


We give a shout out to Texas A&M Forest Service for permission to post and for their leadership and ability to make a difference in the communities they serve.
