Colorado’s Are You FireWise? Program
FireWise, a homeowner education program, was developed by CSFS in conjunction with Larimer County, Poudre Fire Authority and the Loveland Fire Protection District. The how-to manual that helps homeowners create defensible space around their homes has been widely distributed and facilitated around the state, and remains the CSFS centerpiece for wildfire prevention education for individual homeowners.
The program was recently adapted to include an “Are You Plains FireWise?” version. Contact your local forester if you would like to request a FireWise or Community Wildfire Protection Planning presentation.
