Colorado Continues to Rebuild Fire Adapted Communities

IBHS is partnering with the Colorado State Fire Chiefs and the Ready, Set, Go! Program to continue its commitment to help Colorado Rebuild Fire Adaptive Communities, a successful 2012 initiative in response to devastating wildfires in Colorado Springs. On Feb. 22, IBHS Wildfire Expert Dr. Steve Quarles will conduct a firefighter train-the-trainer workshop at South Metro Fire Rescue Authority in Centennial, Colorado. The training will focus on protecting the structural elements of a house and its surroundings against wildfire. RSVP today to rsg@iafc.org. Space is limited for this unique training opportunity. 

Firefighters nationwide are being increasingly relied upon to assess homes in wildfire-prone areas as part of the International Association of Fire Chiefs Ready, Set, Go! Program. The training will be videotaped by the USDA Forest Service and made available to Ready, Set, Go! Fire Departments in all states.
