ENGEO’s expert engineers, geologists, hydrologists, and GIS analysts provide post-fire, post-flood, and post-earthquake disaster recovery and mitigation services.
Post-Fire Risk Assessment
For questions concerning Post-Fire Risk Assessments, please fill out the form, or email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org for general information.
Our professionals work closely with state, county, and local agencies, emergency responders, geologic hazard abatement districts, homeowners’ associations, and private landowners to assess the immediate and potential effects of natural disasters. Services provided include:
Post-fire hazard evaluation
Drone surveys and aerial imagery for post-fire reconnaissance
Debris flow mapping
Development of GIS-based post-fire asset/risk management planning tools
Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling
Permanent mitigation designs involving ring net barriers, debris basins, and culvert bollards/screens
Temporary mitigation designs utilizing sustainable/re-usable erosion and sediment control products
Post-fire related environmental impacts assessment
Emergency response planning
Resource agency permitting
Weather station and camera installation for real-time monitoring
Implementation and management of fire-fuel abatement zones through the creation and management of Community Based Geologic Hazard Abatement Districts (GHADs)
Seismic Hazard Mitigation
Actively patrolling levees during riverine flood-stage flows
Providing emergency field design for levee breach/stabilization activities
Designing long-term dam, levee, and seawall improvement
Establishing Community-Based Flood Risk Reduction districts to provide flood improvement funding and post-flood recovery insurance.
Millions of acres burn across the western United States each year. Wildfires destroy stabilizing vegetation, which can facilitate devastating geologic hazards such as mudflows, debris flows, and excessive surface erosion during subsequent rainstorms. ENGEO’s team of engineers, geologists, hydrologists, and GIS analysts provide post-fire geologic hazard mitigation efforts to protect critical infrastructure, properties, and sensitive water bodies. ENGEO utilizes cutting-edge technologies and products to remain a step ahead of post-fire geologic hazards.
