Wildfire After Action Report

City of Santa Rosa

The City of Santa Rosa commissioned an independent After-Action Report to review the events and actions around the October 2017 Wildfires. The focus of the report highlights the response to the Tubbs and other fires, which caused unprecedented devastation in Santa Rosa. The objectives of this report include: 

  • Telling the story of the immediate response by City employees and departments in the subsequent days and weeks.
  • Developing a better understanding of those events and actions.
  • Identifying the strengths and areas for improvement of general disaster response efforts.
  • Identifying ways in which the City of Santa Rosa can improve resiliency in the face of wildfires. 

The report presents 23 findings and 54 related recommendations for improvements based on research, interviews, best practices, Federal and State guidelines, and local realizations based on firsthand experience with the fires. While not all recommendations can be immediately implemented, the report recommends the City consider each one in earnest and develop implementation priorities and strategies based on the availability of funding and other resources.
