Fire Preparedness

Being ready for wildfire in Colorado means taking the time now to learn how to safely mitigate, prepare, respond and recover from wildfire. If disaster struck today would you be prepared? Preparation begins with you and your family. Do you have a plan?

We have a responsibility to take care of our wonderful state through active mitigation activities and responsible recreation. Before, during and after fire strikes we must remain informed, prepared and ready to take the pro-active steps necessary to ensure that safety is our primary objective.

Critical to this mission is signing up to receive emergency notifications and then quickly acting on the alerts when they are received. You can get started by finding your local emergency response agencies as http://bit.ly/COAlert.

Being ready for wildfire in Colorado also means having a plan to our family, friends and broader community to provide mental and emotional support during a time of need.

Each and every one of us has an important obligation to ensure that we are ready to mitigate, prepare, respond and recovery from wildfire. Take the time today to review your wildfire knowledge and put the tips into practice. You can get started by visiting https://www.readycolorado.com/hazard/wildfire.

Kitchen Hood Replacement Program a Success!!

kitchen fire burn damage

Over the last decade, our local restaurants were faced with the financial burden of updating their kitchen fire suppression systems to meet changing fire safety standards. East Grand Fire wanted to help lessen this costly expense for our local restaurants so thus created the Commercial Kitchen Safety Incentive Program. This provided up to a $500.00 grant to help the with required replacement of antiquated kitchen hood fire suppression systems in the East Grand Fire Protection District.

We are pleased to say that, to date, East Grand Fire was able to help 11 establishments with the required upgrade to their hood systems. The project is now being completed and East Grand Fire is very happy to have been able to be a part of this important life safety and property preservation enhancing project for our community.
