Jeffco Foothills Town Hall – Saturday, May 15th

As our climate changes, scientists forecast that fast-moving wildfires will burn hotter and longer in increasingly dry conditions. Last year alone, Colorado saw the three largest wildfires in its history. These fires occurred in what’s called the wildland-urban interface – or WUI – where development is near or on forested lands. More than two-thirds of Jefferson County is in the WUI, including Evergreen and Conifer which rank in the top 10 nationally in the potential risk of property loss to wildfire. What lessons did we learn in 2020? How do we work together to reduce risk and keep our community safe? What role can each of us play individually?

Join us for an in-depth conversation with a panel of experts:

  • CO Dept. of Natural Resources Director Dan Gibbs
  • Inter-Canyon Fire Chief Skip Shirlaw
  • Evergreen Community Leader Cindy Latham

We will also be joined by Congressman Joe Neguse!

We hope to see you there and we look forward to taking your questions! Please register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_0XiEAeSgTiOzOFMqX6NNIA
