Post Fire Resources

After the Fire

After a catastrophic wildfire, quick action must be taken to minimize social, environmental and economic devastation. Responsive action requires  navigating a complex maze of diverse landowners, community organizations and numerous local and federal requirements.

Given enough time, forests eventually heal from wildfire, but that healing process can take decades or even centuries. They simply won’t heal quickly without human intervention. Timely rehabilitation efforts reduce environmental impacts of fire and can have a positive impact on the community’s social and economic situation in the months and years after the fire. Perhaps most importantly, quick and effective rehabilitation efforts improve public health and safety.

This page is intended to provide website links containing valuable post-fire recovery and restoration information. We hope it will prove useful in helping  your community establish plans and priorities that  protect its citizens, homes, essential infrastructure and resources from the destruction that can occur after a catastrophic wildfire.
