The Village of Angel Fire is located in NE New Mexico in the Sangre De Cristo mountains. Our Community is rated as Very-High for risk of Wildfire. We have adopted a revised Fuel modification Ordinance and interact regularly with our residents regarding wildfire. We have well trained wildland firefighters, have established a mass notification system, and work with the USFS, NM State Forestry, and the Forest Stewards Guild.

We are interested in working on fire adapted communities efforts through action and education and we seek resources from your organization to accomplish this. We had been operating on the Fire wise model in years past.

Fuel modification

We have adopted a revised fuel modification ordinance and are trying to educate our community to follow it.

NFL Grant
