Are you a Boulder County homeowner already working to reduce your home’s vulnerability to wildfire, or is it something that you have been meaning to do? Do you require assistance in identifying the weak links in your home’s defenses or financial support to help you pay for defensible space mitigation work? Or you don’t know where to start? Wildfire Partners is here to help!

Wildfire Partners provides a comprehensive, on-site assessment of your home ignition zone; a customized report detailing actions you should take; and a follow-up visit to ensure that you are prepared for future wildfires. By becoming a Wildfire Partner, you will improve the safety of you and your family, serve as a positive example for your neighbors, and make your community more resilient.

This program is funded by Boulder County, a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program award from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and a Wildfire Risk Reduction Grant from the Colorado Department of Natural Resources. Apply online, or call 303-441-1420 or email info@wildfirepartners.org.
