Colorado Post-Fire Playbook

Wildfires in Colorado have been increasing in frequency and severity, often leading to longer watershed recovery periods and necessitating an “all hands on deck” approach to post-fire rehabilitation. Counties, tribes, municipalities, and water providers are typically the entities most directly and immediately impacted by wildfire and post-fire erosion and flooding, yet there is a gap in guidance in terms of navigating the complexities surrounding post-fire rehabilitation. This Post-Fire Playbook is designed to help fill that gap, by serving as an actionable worksheet that includes specific and critical steps to take and contacts to make before, during, and within the first 30 days of a fire to facilitate the process.
