I have been the Archuleta County Coordinator for FireWise of Southwest Colorado since 2012. As of October, 2018 the organization is now known as the Wildfire Adapted Partnership. I facilitate the efforts of neighborhood volunteer ambassadors in Archuleta County, Colorado. We strive to help educate, develop plans and implement those plans in order to protect lives and property from wildfire. This work is part of a bigger picture that is under the umbrella of developing fire adapted communities. As part of the FAC Net, we strive to bring a wholistic landscape approach to the issue of fire adapted communities in the county. I am also a member of local and multi-state collaborative groups that are working to coordinate efforts in the region.
