Conducted periodically by the CAL FIRE Fire and Resource Assessment Program (FRAP), the Assessment links together state requirements for natural resource inventories and strategies and the federal government's desire to rely more heavily on these state programs in determining priorities for funding. The 2017 Assessment is now complete and is available online.

FRAP has developed Fire Hazard Severity Zones for community planning and real estate disclosure purposes. There are two types: FHSZ in State Responsibility Areas and Very High FHSZ in Local Responsibility Areas.

FHSZ was originally developed in 2007 and will be updated in the coming year.
