Through a generous grant by United Power, we are able to significantly reduce the cost of this class. Originally $250 per person, now it is only $150 per person for the 2 day training. These fees primarily help us cover the costs of the instructors and our insurance for the class, so your support is greatly appreciated!

Wildfire Preparedness Workshop

April 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Coal Creek Canyon Community Hall, 31528
golden, Colorado (CO) 80403 United States
+ Google Map

Wildfire Preparedness Workshop April 27 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!!

July Saws & Slaws Event – Spruce Canyon Drive

July 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Coal Creek

Many of our neighborhoods in Coal Creek Canyon are "One way in/one way out". In the event of a wildfire, it is imperative that we create safer passage for the residents of these areas. We will hold a "Legacy Event" on Saturday, July 13th: working together to cut trees down and process them for 4 hours and then we will join together for a Potluck Lunch. Bringing your own chair is always a good idea :) We will be working on 2 properties in particular, creating a 40 foot wide egress in order to ensure better odds of escape through that roadway. We have a lot of trees to process so we hope you will join us! We will gather for a Safety Meeting at 7:45am at the Coady's home, 29344 Spruce Canyon Drive. Please drop off your food items here. We will break into groups and saw, "swamp" (drag slash) and chip until noon, when we will have a Potluck Lunch. Please use the button below to sign up so we know who is coming. Thanks for helping us make this neighborhood safer in the event of a fire! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0d4fada729a46-july
