Follow Up: Mt. Charleston/Carpenter 1 Fire
The Burned Area Emergency Response Team (BAER) is working to complete its assessment and recommendations. They provide a rapid assessment of burned watersheds to identify unacceptable post-fire threats and implement emergency treatments to reduce unacceptable risks before the first major storm or damaging event. The fire resulted in a loss of vegetation, exposure of the soil to erosion and increased water runoff that may lead to flooding and increased sediment and debris flows.
