Presentation: Understanding the Colorado Fire Commission

The Colorado Fire Commission, created in 2019, brings together stakeholders from across Colorado and across disciplines in an effort to address Colorado’s fire problem and its consequences. The work of the Commission allows the state to proactively address fire issues by developing a comprehensive approach that embraces mitigation, prevention, preparedness, and suppression, as well as developing long-term strategies and recommendations on complex fire issues. The Commission’s current focus is on high-risk occupancies, the risks to residents in the Wildland Urban Interface, firefighter training and certification, and addressing our overall approach to wildland fire. This presentation will provide an overview of the Commission's current work as well as how to engage with the Commission on topics of interest.
