If you reside in Evergreen, Colorado, you are living in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). Wildfires are a natural part of Colorado's environment and living in the WUI means you have an inherently higher risk of wildfire.
Evergreen Fire/Rescue encourages all homeowners to take their relationship and responsibility of living in the WUI seriously. Planning ahead, reducing the risks on your property and preparing for wildfire are actions that residents can take to reduce their risk of wildfire.
Evergreen Fire/Rescue's Mitigation Program provides guidance, resources and services to help the residents of Evergreen reduce their risk of wildfire.
Within our Community Wildfire Protection Plan (2020), twenty-six Plan Units were identified. Plan Units serve as an organization for EFR to reach into the many neighborhoods within Evergreen Fire Protection District. Plan Units have volunteer Ambassadors that help EFR communicate with the neighborhoods and plan fire mitigation projects and events.
If you are interested in helping with your neighborhood's fire mitigation work and learning more about your Plan Unit please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
