Reducing the Impact of Disasters Through Education
State Information

Resources Collected

 

If you have resources to help address these requests, please send them to Pat Skinner (LA), EDEN web manager. They will be forwarded immediately to the person who made the request and will be shared on this page.

March 19:  Colorado's initial request was for assistance in four areas:

  • information on managing rangeland fire recovery and blowout and the blowing ash 
  • information on managing a large burn area (post fire). 
  • factsheets on dealing with losses of building, equipment and livestock.
  • helping youth recover - the fire cut a swath through a pretty heavy 4-H influenced area; we expect many 4-H families will have lost their livestock projects


Helping Hand from Texas 

Andy Vestal, Texas AgriLife Extension, drawing on the 2011 experience, these resources to Marvin Reynolds:

Texas EDEN website . The site has resources for the public, for home, farmstead, range and other issues, and general disaster recovery.

Wildfire Emergency Protocols and Estimates of Agricutlural Fire Losses (2011), which can be found on EDEN's - 2011 Texas Wildfire page.

Andy shared an unpublished loss estimating tool and offered this additional comment: "...on burned rangelands of 2500ac and greater our state USDA FSA office provide fence loss estimates (miles of fences burned) based on their satellite imagery. This was very beneficial and you may want to visit with your FSA county director about that resource."
