KRDO TV in Colorado reported on yesterday's field tour by members of the national Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network at their annual meeting near Colorado Springs. There are currently 18 Fire Adapted Communities network participants from all over the U.S.

Woodland Park, northwest of the city of Colorado Springs, is one network hub where a lot of wildfire safety education and action has been ongoing for years. The area is home to five recognized Firewise Communities/USA sites and is also home base for the Coalition for the Upper South Platte, a strong proponent of wildfire mitigation in the context of watershed health.
