Resources for Postfire Response: Empowering Land Managers with New After Fire Toolkit

Author(s): Brian Cooke
Year Published: 2020

To improve access and understanding of postfire resources, scientists with the Rocky Mountain Research Station and its partners have drawn on years of science/management collaboration to compile an online resource called the After Fire Toolkit and Information site. The After Fire Toolkit, which can be found at www.fs.usda.gov/rmrs/tools/after-fire-toolkit-southwest, came about following a 2014 science and land management workshop to identify and prioritize land managers’ research needs for enhancing long-term resilience of ecological systems to wildfire. The Toolkit includes technical reports, assessments, case studies, articles, flow and erosion models, and information on methods for postfire mitigation, treatment effectiveness, rehabilitation, and restoration.
