This document is applicable to most federally declared disasters, and was created as part of the recovery process from the 2020 Almeda Fire in Southern Oregon. It includes lessons learned, best practices, and contributions from fire survivors and community partners, including the Almeda Fire Zone Captains Program. We share this in the hopes that fire-stricken communities can benefit from the hard lessons learned by those communities who have been through this before. We are standing with you in solidarity in this difficult time!
