Colorado Community Earns National Recognition for Wildfire
Colo. – Because of its efforts to reduce the vulnerability of homes
and landscapes to wildfire, Deer Valley Estates recently earned
Firewise Communities/USA® recognition from the National Firewise
Deer Valley Estates worked with the Colorado State Forest Service, US Forest Service, BLM and Upper Pine Fire Protection District to develop a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) that addresses the subdivision’s wildfire risk and what could be done to mitigate that risk. The plan was completed in 2009 and residents are currently working on implementing the prioritized list of actions in the CWPP. View the 2012 accomplishment report.
southwest Colorado, fire is an important and natural phenomenon in
many of our ecosystems, especially the ponderosa pine. To think that
fire is just going to go away is naďve, so it only makes sense to
expect and prepare for it. Wildfire should be taken into account as
new communities are designed and built, but it is also important
that established subdivisions ‘retrofit’ for wildfire,” said
Kent Grant, Colorado State Forest Service District Forester. And,
the Deer Valley CWPP does just that.
Estates is the first community in southwest Colorado to be
recognized as Firewise Communities/USA, joining more than 600 other
communities nationwide that have been recognized since the
program’s inception in 2002.
