After the Fires

Rescuing Historic Resources & Responding to Disasters
& Emergencies

The 2002 and 2003 fires damaged and destroyed numerous historical and archaeological resources in San Diego County. In neighboring counties recent earthquakes and floods or mudslides have also damaged historical resources. San Diego County has over 16,500 known archaeology sites as well as over 1500 significant historic structures. Protection, preservation, and management of these resources is essential. Because of the recent fires, San Diego County cultural resource managers, heritage managers, archaeologists and historians discovered that they are ill-prepared to deal with such devastation.

SOHO is planning a series of workshops to develop a historical resources disaster plan for San Diego County. Staff and members of various federal, state and local agencies, Indian tribes, and historical organizations would be invited to participate in these workshops. The first one-day workshop would be facilitated by the National Trust, which has extensive experience in disaster planning. Topics for discussion would include identifying the threats, determining which resources would be damaged by each type of disaster, and developing strategies for partnerships and resource sharing prior to the disaster. Subsequent workshops will be held to further refine the plan. The San Diego County plan would be unique in that it would be a multi-agency, countywide plan, focusing on partnerships and resource sharing.
