Event Registration - Post-Wildfire Remediation on Federal Lands

Wednesday, May 02, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Central Daylight Time
Description:This is a live members only webinar presentation.The wildfires of 2017 were monumental in their expanse, severity and cost to suppress- and the damage doesn't always end when the fire is put out. Loss of vegetation and fire-induced water repellent soils can trigger increased runoff which causes erosion, flooding or debris flows many miles downstream of the fire. This presentation will provide an overview of the effects of wildfires on natural resources and describe the post-fire emergency response (BAER) program implemented by the Forest Service and other federal land management agencies. Typical emergency response actions and treatment examples will be described along with examples of longer-term post fire remediation needs and costs.
