Summary: 
Where life and property are at risk, protection from post-fire debris can be provided by engineered traps and fences. (A) This check dam, designed to trap debris flows, is in the San Gabriel Mountains upstream of the suburb of Glendale, Los Angeles. (B) This 6-m-high debris fence adjacent to Highway 1 on the Californian coast near Big Sur is designed to trap large post-fire debris flows. It is constructed of loops of 25 mm steel cable attached to steel pylons anchored in bedrock.
