ENVISIONING

A FIRE READY
FUTURE

Chaffee County typifies the new reality of wildfire in the West. Decades of fire suppression, drought and ensuing insect infestations have caused our forests to decline into very poor health. Fires are coming more frequently and they are more intense.

WHERE WE WORK.

NEXT GENERATION WILDFIRE PROTECTION PLAN

The Envision Fire and Healthy Landscapes Partnership developed the Next Generation Community Wildfire Protection Plan to deliver solutions that reduce wildfire risk. We used the most current information and new computer modeling technology to create Colorado’s leading forest health action plan. The plan explains risk posed by severe wildfire, prioritizes action to decrease that risk, and sets a course to improve forest health. It also engages the community to act – together — to address one of the community’s most serious and concerning challenges.
