A Map to Understanding Trauma and Responses in the Aftermath of the 2017 Fires

The 2017 fires impacted all Oakmont and Santa Rosa residents.  Whether we had to evacuate, lost a home or a loved one or know someone who did – everyone was impacted by this difficult experience.  Yet people responded to this overwhelming experience differently: from seeking contact with others, to being in a hypervigilant state, to withdrawal and isolation.


Conventional environmentalism is generally skeptical of economic growth, mass prosperity and continual technological progress, arguing that we must constrain our consumption and live more simply if we are to avoid overtaxing the Earth and exceeding its resource constraints.
