Douglas Long Term Recovery Group
Glide Revitalization is the sponsoring organization that houses the county’s Long Term Recovery Group (LTRG). A LTRG is a cooperative body that is made up of representatives from faith-based, non-profit, government, business and other organizations working within a community to assist individuals and families as they recover from disaster. Representatives are volunteers and the group generally operates as a committee under a sponsoring organization for administrative purposes in order to administer funds for community recovery needs.
In September 2020, the Archie Fire burned more than 131,000 acres along the North Umpqua Scenic Byway (HWY 138). The fire devastated our regional community, with over 100 homes lost. Glide Revitalization provided disaster relief by assisting those who were evacuated and aided families who lost homes by providing basic needs like food, clothing, and temporary shelter to make sure they were safe, sanitary, and secure. It was from this grassroots effort that our Long Term Recovery Group evolved, ultimately being established by FEMA as the LTRG for all of Douglas County.
The Douglas Long Term Recovery Group provides services to assist individuals and communities to recover from past disasters and mitigate against future disasters. Services include, but are not limited to: Damage assessments, home rebuilding, water well replacement, fire fuels mitigation around homes, and property reforestation after wildfire.
