Community Response Plans (CRPs) create a community-led roadmap for how local entities should respond to smoke, with an emphasis on protecting populations who are most at risk. While CRPs were originally developed to enable more flexible smoke management for prescribed fire, they are also broadly applicable for smoke impacts from wildfire events. We will highlight key communication needs for smoke and discuss different approaches and resources for developing plans.
