*Wildfire Activity Highlights Need for Mitigation to Protect Homes*
With large fires causing evacuations and structure losses over the past few weeks in northwest Colorado and around the West, the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) wants to remind homeowners living in the wildland-urban interface to prepare for wildfires before they arrive.
It seems like every year there’s a major wildfire in Colorado. And not one homeowner ever thought it could happen to them. So take charge. Learn how you can protect your family –including pets and livestock — and your home before there is a fire. Sign up for Douglas County Code Red wildfire notification. Clear trees and brush from around the perimeter of your home. Come up with an escape plan. And don’t wait for permission to leave. Know when to go. And give yourself a fighting chance.
