Operation Care & Recovery Resources

The year 2020 will be etched in our memories for the sheer amount of volatility in all areas of our lives. The nation has experienced devastating wildfires and hurricanes throughout the year, all amidst the global coronavirus pandemic. Forest Service employees have suffered losses, including some while fighting fires. 

Our job now is to care—to care for our own, for the people we serve, and for the lands we manage. As a caring and responsive organization committed to core values of service and interdependence, the Forest Service has launched Operation Care and Recovery: a corporate approach to supporting our employees & communities.
