BAER team surveying Pipeline Fire perimeter

A Forest Service Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team has started
surveying the fire-affected areas located within the Pipeline Fire perimeter. BAER
team assessments are rapid evaluations of post-fire conditions of the burned
landscape. These assessments determine the level of risk from potential flooding
and debris flow, and calculate how these risks will affect both human safety and
the natural and cultural resources in the area. The team, led by Forest Service
Soil Scientist Eric Schroder, began conducting field surveys yesterday. In
addition to field surveys, BAER teams use science-based models to rapidly
evaluate and assess the burned area. Following work on the Pipeline Fire, the
BAER team will conduct surveys and modeling and issue post-fire
recommendations for the fire-affected area in the Haywire Fire perimeter.
