Rebuilding Begins: FEMA Updates Restoration After The Fires

A manufactured home in Medford barely survived the Almeda Fire, but it took some damage.

A manufactured home in Medford barely survived the Almeda Fire, but it took some damage.

Amid the rubble, signs of restoration: frames for new houses are sprouting up in some of the neighborhoods destroyed in the September fires in the region. The rebuilding work goes on while the work of clearing away the remains of homes and vehicles continues.

FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, plays a role in long-term rebuilding, and in the short-term housing of fire victims. We continue an irregular set of visits with FEMA reps to keep up with news on the housing and rebuilding front.

Listen for a progress report on post-fire restoration.
