The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest has assembled a Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) assessment team to analyze post-fire condition of burned watersheds and to plan emergency stabilization treatments for the Cougar Fire. The team will conduct field surveys and analyze satellite imagery to develop burned area assessments.

Reports and maps of the burned area assessments will be available on this site. There is other general information about BAER, rehabilitation, flood preparation, photos and links to weather and flood warnings available at centralwashingtonfirerecovery.info/

Concerned landowners should contact Cascadia Conservation District for private property concerns and/or Chelan County Public Works about specific road or bridge concerns.
