Wildfire Recovery & Mitigation Project
COOL’S mission is to sustainably keep materials that can be reused, repurposed, or recycled out of landfills with increasing benefit to the People, the Economy, and the Environment of California.
- CalRecycle identifies beetle trees as a major problem for landfills. We all know they contribute to the increased intensity of wildfires.
- The Wildfire Recovery & Mitigation Project will make it profitable to remove fuel from the forest.
- Products will bring jobs and revenue to the mountains while reducing fuel for future fires – removing only dead/dying trees, slash, and brush. The resulting industry will become a sustainable, long-term solution.
- Corporate Social Responsibility programs, especially in industries that are most financially affected by wildfires, have much to gain by providing a fraction of the amount a single wildfire costs to reduce the impact of future fires. COOL has the experienced team to accelerate a business solution.
- MOTIVATION! Family among the Camp Fire survivors includes a Concow volunteer firefighter and his wife who lost their home while he saved lives and his son who only survived because a phone call from a friend woke him up when the fire had already reached his driveway in Paradise.
