After a fire the District works with Nez Perce County to produce a post fire assessment to identify the risks to public safety, infrastructure, and restoration needs. The assessment involves a team of resource professionals from various agencies including federal, state, tribal and university sources. The team evaluates a suite of 18 parameters (discussed below). From this effort, a report is prepared with the findings and actions needed. Nez Perce County and the district prioritize the list of actions and seek funding for implementation.
