Rim BAER Accomplishments Oct. 10th
Incident: Rim Post-Fire BAER Burned Area Emergency Response
BAER accomplishments as of Oct. 9 2013
The Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) implementation team received funding to begin emergency stabilization. Emergency response actions include: hazard tree mitigation; improve and stormproof the roads to restore drainage; repair and construct rolling dips (drivable dip that removes water off the road); stabilize and repair trails; install public warning signs gates and barricades for public safety; and protect cultural and natural resources. While these treatments will help to reduce post-fire effects it must be recognized that not all effects can be mitigated and potential threats to life and property remain during runoff events. The projects underway are listed below.
Restoring drainage - 38% complete:
Clean the ditches and culverts
Pull floatable debris from uphill of the culverts
Water bars – helps with the drainage of water and
Grading the road.
Rolling dips (repair and construct) - 12% complete
Erosion control measure - 46% complete
Trail stabilization - 83% complete
Hazard tree mitigation - 49% complete
Install route markers - 100% complete
Install public warning signs gates and barricades
Hazard tree mitigation - 83% complete along priority roads.
Cultural resource protection: erosion control measures - 31% complete and hazard tree mitigation is 100% complete.
