After Action Review of the Woolsey Fire Incident

Los Angeles County, CA

Citygate assisted the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management in preparing a comprehensive and neutral external After Action Review (AAR) of the Woolsey Fire Incident on behalf of the County and inclusive of the major agencies that interacted with and assisted the County during the historic event. This AAR was completed over 11 months, incorporating all the best practice elements as recommended by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. The County’s Woolsey Task Force and Board of Supervisors unanimously accepted Citygate’s Woolsey Fire AAR Final Report. The Board also passed a motion to retain Citygate for implementation support related to the report’s recommendations—specifically, the development, implementation, and monitoring of an After Action Plan (AAP).
