The hill behind Lake Redding estates is toast. Many of the trees in the greenbelt burned. Is someone available to help is determine if the trees on our hill are a hazard and need removal?

There is a lot of focus on the burned slopes. CalFire/OES/County/City are working together on solutions. We hope to have a report from CalFire listing required mitigation measures. Once we have that in hand, we will be discussing the response required.

Thanks, good to know. For erosion mitigation in a greenbelt area, (we own the land but have restrictions on building) is there any chance the city or state would share financial or coordinating work responsibities with us homeowners? The task is daunting.

This is a question for the FEMA and/or OES representatives at the Disaster Recovery Center. They are available daily in the former KMart building on Hilltop from 9am-7pm. I encourage you to ask them what options you have available to mitigate the costs related to damage due to the Carr fire. They are the experts on what aid is available and what you'll need to do to be able to apply for it. There is a deadline for applying for FEMA aid, so make sure you don't miss it.

Erosion mitigation is an important question. We have asked Regional water control board about measures to prevent toxic ash from hundreds of burned homes from going into 11 local creeks when the rain starts. So far no one has looked into funding for wattles and sandbags to prevent our watershed and creeks from getting poisoned. In Sonoma County the City, County and Water Quality control board helped finance wattles for homeowners to place around there property. The rain is just weeks away and no answer from our local officials yet. Very concerned!!
