Wildfire Partners

Wildfire Partners is a new program to reduce wildfire risk to residents residing in the wildland-urban interface. To help implement Wildfire Partners, Boulder County is hiring 6-10 independent Wildfire Consultants to educate residents on how to prepare for wildfires, perform individual wildfire assessments of homes, and inspect wildfire mitigation measures. Consultants will work part-time starting in January 2014. Initial funding for Wildfire Partners comes from a Colorado Department of Natural Resources Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant. The program’s goal is to assist 500 Wildfire Partners in creating a safe Home Ignition Zone. Homeowners in the Wildfire Partners program will receive limited rebates to perform the mitigation measures recommended in the wildfire assessments performed by the Wildfire Consultants. Information on the Wildfire Partners program for the general public along with the application forms required for residents to participate will be available starting in January 2014.

Specifications and a sample contract are attached.
