WHY: As evidenced by recent, devastating wildfires, high-intensity wildfire continues to pose a major threat in the Pikes Peak Region, particularly in the wildland-urban interface. Proven wildfire mitigation techniques greatly reduce the risk of wildfire to lives and property. When communities have the tools and motivation to proactively work together to reduce wildfire risk, everyone benefits. Wildfire is a natural part of our landscape and we must learn to adapt for the health of our communities and our forests!
