- Go to ResourceThe Cree Fire began on May 7, 2000, as a result of an escaped campfire in the Smokey Bear Ranger District of the Lincoln National Forest. The fire resulted in local, state, and federal emergency declarations. The main body of the fire affected 6,520 acres with spot fires and indirect lines of the fire occurring on approximately 1,745 acres. Approximately 6,280 acres of public lands, 780 acres of state land, and 1,205 acres of private land were burned. An evacuation of residents from four subdivisions threatened by the fire was conducted on May 8. Residents were able to return to their homes by May 11, and the fire was declared contained on May 14, 2000. According to the Wildland Fire Situation Analysis (WFSA) the cost to fight this fire was over $6,000,000. The Village of Ruidoso has applied for funding through the New Mexico Department of Public Safety through FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) in response to disaster FEMA-1329-DR-NM to implement this proposed wildfire fuels reduction plan.
Monte Carlo, Challenger, Chihuahua Washes Stormwater Detention and Sedimentation Basins Project in Nogales, ArizonaGo to ResourceThe City of Nogales has applied to FEMA for assistance with a storm water detention and sedimentation basin project. FEMA is proposing to fund the project under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), as part of the recovery from the flooding that occurred in 2000, which was a Presidentially declared disaster, and under the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program. FEMA has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the impacts of the proposed action.
- Go to ResourceThis Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) evaluates typical actions undertaken by FEMA to implement the Public Assistance (PA) Program to provide disaster relief to North Dakota counties as a result of historic and anticipated future flooding caused by rising water levels in the Devils Lake Basin. This PEA provides the public and decision-makers with the information required to understand and evaluate the potential environmental consequences of these actions and to consider these impacts in decision making. The purpose of this PEA is to help fulfill FEMA’s mandate under the PA Program to expeditiously provide disaster relief by expediting the environmental review process. FEMA will use this PEA to determine the level of environmental analysis and documentation required under the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA).

- Go to ResourceFEMA has prepared this Programmatic Biological Assessment (PBA) for the purpose of initiating a programmatic consultation with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). This PBA describes the types of projects usually funded by FEMA and it evaluates typical recurring actions undertaken by FEMA within the State of California in preparation for and in the wake of disasters. This document will facilitate FEMA’s compliance with the Endagered Species Act (ESA) by providing a framework to address affects to Federally listed species from projects typically funded in response to flood, earthquake, fire, and wind disasters, and to prevent future disasters resulting from these types of events. Through programmatic consultation, NMFS and FEMA intend to streamline the consultations process for these typically recurring actions in California.
