Wildfire Preparedness Day is this Saturday!
As evidenced by recent, devastating wildfires, high-intensity wildfire continues to pose a major threat in Colorado, particularly in the wildland-urban interface. Proven wildfire mitigation techniques greatly reduce the risk of wildfire to lives and property, and improve the health of our forests. Wildfire is a natural and inevitable part of our environment, so communities must work together to proactively prepare for wildfire. National Wildfire Preparedness Day is part of a nationwide movement to increase awareness about wildfire and motivate communities to prepare. This Saturday is a great opportunity to gather with neighbors and join communities around the nation in preparing for wildfire.
