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.
