A local news network featured the work being completed by communities across the state of Colorado and especially focused on those of a youth group. The newscast featured youth volunteers in Colorado Springs who played a big role in helping reduce their community’s risk of loss during a wildfire, on May 6, Wildfire Community Preparedness Day.

 

The group involved in helping two Colorado Springs communities with their mitigation project was from TwoCor.  Some of the youth had survived some of the recent devastating fires in Colorado.  The project not only helps the communities with their mitigation efforts but also helps the youth as well, as part of their personal growth.  Check out the broadcast about their success.
