North Bay Fires, 2017

Archived since: Nov, 2017


The week of October 8th, 2017, devastating firestorms swept through Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino Counties. Local arts, history, media, government and educational organizations responded by creating the Sonoma County Fire Project, an effort to document the fires, the immediate response, impact and aftermath, and the recovery and rebuilding process. This web archive, managed by Sonoma County Library, represents one facet of the larger collecting effort to capture some of the stories, images, social media communication, videos, and maps that circulated during the fires and the 12 months following. It specifically focuses on the websites of local non-profits, neighborhood organizations, and emergency response agencies; local press coverage; and blogs, Facebook groups and popular Twitter hashtags. The dual purpose of the collection is to gather ephemeral digital documentation of this life-changing event for future learning as well as to encourage healing and foster resilience by capturing signs of regrowth and rebuilding.
