A look at wildfire in Colorado

Blog Post created by Lisa Marie Sinatra Employee on Jan 8, 2014

If you haven't seen it, the Denver Post posted recently a special documentary called, "The Fire Line: Wildfire in Colorado" highlighting the recent wildfires in Colorado and their impact on residents and the environment.

Part of the documentary focused on the Waldo Canyon Fire and highlighted scenes from the FAC coalition's 2013 video, Creating Fire Adapted Communities: A Case Study from Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon Fire.” If you haven't seen it, make it a point to. The video tells an important story about the City of Colorado Springs and its decade-long effort to prepare for wildfire. 

A companion report, "Lessons Learned from Waldo Canyon" is also available. Both the FAC coalition video and report were created in an effort to share the post-fire field investigation (of Waldo Canyon) and stress the importance of communities becoming fire adapted.
