State Responsibility Areas (SRA)


bighornThe SRA dataset provides areas of legal responsibility for fire protection, including State Responsibility Areas (SRA), Federal Responsibility Areas (FRA), and Local Responsibility Areas (LRA). CAL FIRE has a legal responsibility to provide fire protection on all State Responsibility Area (SRA) lands, which are defined based on land ownership, population density and land use. For example, CAL FIRE does not have responsibility for densely populated areas, agricultural lands, or lands administered by the federal government.

SRA designations undergo a thorough 5 year review cycle, as well as annual updates for incorporations, error fixes, and ownership changes that do not require Board approval. In addition, CAL FIRE is now responsible for determining parcels subject to the SRA Fire Prevention Fee under AB X1 29.
