REDDING, Calif. – The National Park Service has released their After Action Review (AAR) report on the Carr Fire to share the lessons learned. The fire ignited on July 23, 2018 and there were many interagency partners who contributed to the review. Some of the agencies who partnered with the National Park Service were CAL FIRE, Redding Fire, and the U.S. Forest Service.

Over the course of five weeks, the Carr Fire burned 229,651 acres in and around Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, Redding, CA and caused over 1.6 billion dollars in damages. Investigators determined that a mechanical failure of a privately owned travel trailer caused the fire.

The review focused on interagency cooperation, interagency management, incident administration and finance, and post-fire response.

Open dialogue was cited as one of factors  that led to success in response to firefighter deaths and other incidents occuring during the incident.

Firefighters believe this fire will serve as a model for fighting futures, mainly because of the interagency communication.

Another highlight of the report was the highly successful program of support services provided to first responders struggling with their own losses or needing emotional support while still fighting the fire.

The nineteen recommendations that resulted from the AAR will become action items for the National Park Service, with possible involvement from interagency partners, to further strengthen practices moving forward. This work will commence in spring 2019.
