Community Assessments

For communities that are new to Wildfire Adapted Partnership, Wildfire Adapted and 1-2 of our partners (BLM, CSFS, or local fire department) do either a drive through or walk through of the neighborhood with the Neighborhood Ambassador and one or more residents. The community receives a written report, complete with pictures, and 4-6 recommendations to get the community started on their wildfire preparedness efforts. No cost to homeowner other than coordinating with Home Owners Associations and neighbors.

Who’s Eligible: Communities with Neighborhood Ambassadors
Contact: Your County Coordinator to arrange for a Community Assessment.

 

WHY GET A COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT…

Community Assessments are a good way for smaller neighborhoods to begin a wildfire community protection plan. To register for national Firewise USA® status, Community Assessments or Colorado Wildfire Protection Plans are required.
