Why you should start being prepared now!

Everyone knows that wildfire mitigation is expensive and time consuming, but avoiding the task can be catastrophic!

In the 1960s, Colorado averaged about 460 fires each year that burned about 8,000 acres annually, according to Colorado State Forest Service records. In the past decade, Colorado saw an average of about 2,500 fires a year burning nearly 100,000 acres.

Attend the Be Prepared event on Saturday May 11:

  •   Learn about some of the inexpensive things you can do immediately that can increase the odds that your home might survive the next disaster.
  •   Learn how to establish the priorities that can give you the biggest bang for your buck.
  •   Meet the people who can and want to help you.

Being adequately prepared takes time.
