Have you done everything you can to protect your home from wildfire?

Are you sure?

Come to the Larimer County Beetle Buster meeting Saturday, September 25 and find out.

  • Meet Suzanne Adams who was evacuated TWICE during the Fourmile Fire in Boulder County.
  • Talk with Donna and Randy Moore who were evacuated during the Reservoir Road Fire in Larimer County.
  • Talk to the CSFS fire fighters, who fought these fires, about the benefits of neighbors working together using Community Wildfire Protection Plans.
  • Receive written guidelines providing you with tips you may not have thought of that might save your home.

Pine Beetle mitigation and fire mitigation can go hand in hand. Your work in one area can help in the other. If you live in or near a forest, be aware of the steps you should take to protect your home and family.
