Natural Disaster Resources   arrow

Are you prepared if your property is in a wildfire’s or flood’s path of destruction? What about if you get snowed in for several days or your electricity goes out. Can you safely evacuate your family and livestock?  Being prepared for natural disasters will help you survive and reduce your stress level during a disaster.

Wildfire Wednesdays Series – November

Every Wednesday in October we will be offering a free virtual webinar highlighting a relevant topic related to wildfire. Topics include fire behavior and ecology, home hardening and defensible space, fire resistant landscaping, and evacuation planning for you and your animals. Speakers are experts in their field from Colorado State University, Colorado State Forest Service, and Colorado State University Extension. See attached flyer for more details and please help spread the word to your contacts. Thanks and please reach out if you have any questions!

Whether you live in the mountains, foothills or plains, this series will provide information on wildfire and how to manage your property to provide the best chance for limiting damage.
