Helpful Links from the Emergency Preparedness Committee
Post Wildfire Flooding Risks Resource
With the rainy weather on the way, and the devastating wildfire season behind us, the Emergency Preparedness Committee would like to remind local committees some of the ongoing complications post wildfires. Wildfires can drastically change the terrain and make the ground less able to absorb water. Even areas that don’t usually flood are now at risk for flash flooding and mudflows for several years after a wildfire.
If you live in and around areas that were impacted by wildfires, please use the link found below to raise awareness about the risk of flooding after wildfires.
The Emergency Preparedness Committee would also like to thank FEMA for posting and bringing awareness to post-wildfire flooding risk.
