Our Program
Spurred to act by 2020’s intense and widespread wildfires in the western United States, All Hands and Hearts began exploring ways to leverage our volunteer model and project management expertise to assist affected communities. Our Disaster Assessment Response Team (DART) conducted on-the-ground assessments of impacted areas and has determined that a year-round program, designed to recover, mitigate impact and respond to wildfires, would be the most impactful course of action in California. We have partnered with CalOES (California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services) who have helped us to identify and connect with vulnerable communities in need of assistance.

All Hands and Hearts launched a pilot wildfire program in Paradise in Butte County, California in early 2021. Alongside local partners, we will focus on recovery activities, including internal home rebuilds and fire mitigation projects. Fire mitigation projects may include fuel breaks and the creation of defensible spaces by felling and removing trees.

This pilot program will also build further capacity in our organization through a sawyer training program, increasing the number of sawyers that we can deploy for future disasters.

Our focus has shifted from wildfire mitigation to residential home rebuild and recovery. Visit our website to learn more! http://bit.ly/VMWildfire
