You will learn techniques about how to give your home and property an added advantage in case of a wildfire.
We welcome everyone to this free workshop. During a time when our rural communities are suffering from drought, take advantage and learn the fire-safety guidelines. These guidelines and the FireWise Program was developed by the Colorado State Forest Service extensive study of previous wildfires in our state.
