Flood After Fire Campaign
Did you know properties directly affected by fires are most at risk for flooding?
Since scorched ground can no longer absorb water, residents living downstream of fire-affected areas and in nearby neighborhoods could experience flash flooding and mudflows for up to five years or more after a wildfire. Local agents are encouraged to use the resources below to work with clients to raise awareness about the risk of flooding after fires.
