Flick Creek Burned Area Emergency Response and Rehabilitation Plans

Following wildfire events such as the Flick Creek fire of 2006, there may be the need to identify threats to life or property or to stabilize and prevent further unacceptable degradation to natural and cultural resources resulting from the effects of a fire. Although natural recovery is preferable, federal agencies have the authority to prescribe and implement emergency treatments to minimize these threats. The National Park Service and US Forest Service combined to complete the Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) and Burned Area Rehabilitation (BAR) plans for the Flick Creek fire.

The BAER plan considers emergency treatments that must be completed within one year of the fire, to address those more immediate, critical threats to life, property, and resources.

The BAR plan considers treatments to minor structures and facilities or to natural and cultural resources that are not expected to recover naturally from severe wildfire damage (such as invasive species infestations); generally the BAR treatments are not true emergency situations.
