Wildfire Mitigation Conference, Albright Auditorium, Saturday, 11. May 2019

Routt County and northwest Colorado were impacted by several large wildland fires last fire season that threatened homes and property. Wildland fire is part of our environment and we all are exposed to some risk, no matter where we live in the county. Please join us for this one day conference that brings together logal and regional experts to help the community understand wildfire risks and the steps we can all take to mitigate them. The conference will begin with local wildland fire experts speaking on local and regional weather and fire conditions.  The afternoon will include breakout sessions that will target more specific interests.  There will be exhibitors tabling throughout the conference to provide information and resources about wildfire preparedness and mitigation.
The conference has three goals: to raise awareness and provide information on past and current wildfire mitigation efforts; to build upon and replicate success stories; and to learn about resources available in Routt County to reduce the risk of wildfire through mitigation. The conference aims to promote mitigation at different levels and scales, from the individual homeowner to HOAs, public and private, challenging us to think of our landscape as a whole. As the saying goes: “A dollar invested in mitigation saves many more dollars in firefighting”.   
Free lunch will be provided for the first 200 who sign up for the conference.
