Two years ago, the Bastrop County Complex Fire caused widespread destruction in the area and according to residents there, the fire encouraged them to take action to help reduce any future fire risk. As a result, this week, The Colony became the first official Firewise Community in Bastrop County, and joins the nearly 60 recognized Firewise communities in Texas. See a full list of the Texas communities by visiting our community webpage.
Learn more about The Colony in an online article for Austin's "Your News Now" that includes a video of the ceremony.
