REDDING, Calif - Redding city leaders are working to reduce wildfire risks.

On Thursday, city leaders will meet with the Community Planning Assistance for Wildfires Organization at city hall to discuss what changes they feel would be best.

This comes as the collaboration took its first steps on Wednesday when CPAW set foot on the burn scars of the Carr Fire.

CPAW has gone around to 30 communities across the nation to help them learn how to prevent wildfires.

This includes sharing their knowledge of fire behavior, land use planning, forestry, and building plans.

On Wednesday, Action News Now tried to meet up with the organization to learn more about their intentions and why they chose Redding.

Unfortunately, they were unable to meet. 

Action News Now will be attending that meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday.
