  POST-FIRE/RECOVERY INFORMATION AVAILABLE

 

After a catastrophic wildfire, quick action must be taken to minimize social, environmental, and economic devastation. Given enough time, forests eventually heal from wildfire, but that healing process can take decades or even centuries. The landscape won’t heal quickly without human intervention. Timely rehabilitation efforts can reduce the 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.

Information regarding post-fire recovery and restoration is available
