Ecologically Sound Practices (ESP) Partnership

The ESP Partnership is a collaboration between the fire authorities and climate and environmental organizations of Marin to mitigate the risk of wildfires. The coalition works as advisors to the fire professionals, defining best environmental practices to guide the implementation of the wildfire prevention plans and offering expertise and recommendations on specific projects. It serves as a community resource. It is guided by a Steering Committee and has formed three subject matter committees who are currently meeting.
