Community Driven Fire Recovery
Bringing It Back To Communities

When faced with a crisis, communities often find themselves lacking a relationship with local resources, organizations and government agencies. Walu has a demonstrated method of building a community bridge between communities and the social programs and resources that are there to serve them.  

Walu's CEO, CJ Runyon, began working in Community Led Fire Recovery as a Director of Fire Cleanup in Harbison Canyon after the 2003 San Diego Firestorms. 

Walu has combined Fire Recovery efforts with Community Driven Development to not only assist fire victims in their difficult journey, but to also conduct needed training to ensure they are stakeholders in their recovery process.

  • Networking with local nonprofits, organizations, and agencies to achieve the recovery goals of the community and fire victims. 

  • Depending on the cleanup plan the county chooses, Walu is capable of assisting in the cleanup phase.
