Wildfire Preparedness Workshop
In this comprehensive Cowildfire workshop, we will present the latest information that will help you prepare for a wildfire in our community. Much continues to be learned after the devastating fires of the last few years, so it is important to stay informed of the current recommendations around how to prepare, how to reduce the negative impacts and how to survive those impacts when they happen. Since we live in a fire-adapted ecosystem, we know that it is a question of when, not if, a fire impacts our community.
We will be covering:
– mitigating your structure and landscape
– specific risks for Coal Creek Canyon
– preparing for evacuation, including for your pets & animals
– ensuring you have adequate insurance coverage
– resources to help with all of the above!
Presentations will be made by: Boulder County Wildfire Partners, Boulder/Jeffco/Gilpin County Emergency Managers, Coal Creek Canyon Fire Rescue, Saws & Slaws and more! (It takes a village to serve our community!)
We choose to live in our beautiful Wildland Urban Interface (WUI)). This session will help us be good stewards of each of our little pieces of it to the benefit of our forests, fire fighters and community!
We look forward to see you there. Be sure to invite your neighbors, too!!
