Living with Wildfire

Larimer County Tree Farmers, Linda Masterson and Cory Phillips, lost their home and Tree Farm in the Crystal Fire last April. Linda has chronicled their experiences dealing with insurance, government, and the many things that most of us don't think about until after a fire occurs. It is well worth your time to read her account...and take notes.



Preparing for Wildfire

Jim Webster, the Community Wildfire Protection Planner, for Boulder County informs me that Boulder County has produced a very informative website dedicated to their Community Wildfire Protection Plan. Included in it is a series of videos about Boulder Couty wildfires that are outstanding. More information worth your time.
