Preparing for Flood Waters after Wildfires

The emergency doesn’t end when the smoke clears!

Wildfires can significantly change the landscape, presenting risk of debris-flows and flooding.  Change in vegetation, combined with steep slopes and intense rainfall, increase the risk of flash flooding in the burned area. Lands downstream of the burned area are also subject to increased flooding.

Until the burned area begins to recover, little will stop the waters from coming down the canyons. While multi-agency efforts are being taken to reduce the risks to life and property downstream of the fire, residents in the area should develop individual plans to protect themselves and their property.

Now is the time to prepare for post-fire flooding!
