Kelsi Bracmort
Specialist in Agricultural Conservation and Natural Resources Policy

Raging wildfires, burned homes, and the evacuation of thousands make headlines nearly every fire season. Severe wildfires in 2011 occurred in Arizona and New Mexico in the late spring, and in Texas and Arizona in the late summer. Options for federal support and assistance—during the fires, in the aftermath, and aimed at preventing a recurrence—have been raised by many concerned about the ongoing disasters. This report briefly describes these federal options.
