Welcome to the After-the-Fire guide for Washington communities.
The impacts of destructive wildfires continue after the flames go out. This guide was written to help Washington individuals and communities recover after wildfire. It also includes a wide range of materials on pre-fire planning, which is a critical partner to post-fire recovery.
For your convenience, the 5 most often used tools on this site are available below. If you need additional information, browse the tabs at the top of the page for more information.
1. Recovery Contacts: A map and webpage dedicated to helping you find the right local contacts to help with recovery, including county conservation district personnel.
2. After-the-Fire Toolkit: Outreach materials already designed to allow community coalitions, local wildfire coordinating groups, fire districts and post-fire recovery organizers to respond to community needs quickly, accurately, and comprehensively.
3. Conservation District Property Assessment: Conservation Districts are on the front lines of wildfire recovery. Use this intake form to relay your property damage and concerns to your local CD.
4. Flood Insurance Help: Flood risk often increases after wildfire, and homeowners insurance typically does not cover flooding. Find out when and how to acquire flood insurance.
5. Resource Library: A collection of 50+ online websites, guides, and templates to support wildfire recovery, accompanied by short descriptions.
The Washington Post-Wildfire Flood Committee (PWFC) brings you this guide to provide useful information during this difficult time, and to support you on the road to recovery.
