Learn About Wildfire Mitigation in Jefferson County
On Tuesday, May 21, Fire Chiefs from Elk Creek Fire Department, Evergreen Fire Rescue and Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District along with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Emergency Management Team and Jeffco Open Space, CO staff, provided presentations on Wildfire Mitigation to the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners as part of a work session. Open Space provided information specifically about what is being done to mitigate wildfire danger at Jeffco Open Space Parks. Work Sessions conducted by the Board of County Commissioners are informal discussions to explore an issue facing the county in more depth.
In addition to the presentations, Jefferson County’s Facilities Division provided information about the county’s Slash Program. You can learn more about the Slash Program at www.jeffco.us/slash
