It has been a wet summer in Crested Butte so we haven’t had to fear wildfire like so many in the west. In the last week there has been a haze over the mountains because smoke from the fires in Washington is blowing here and this has reminded us not to get complacent. Colorado has had its share of fires over the last few years and it is important for property owners to be prepared.
I am a member of the Colorado Association of Realtors Project Wildfire Committee and we are working to educate the public about what they can do to protect their property. Our local association recently mailed 2,500 flyers to property owners who live in the forest and would be most likely to be affected by fire. This mailing is attached here. Please let me know if you have any questions. I am happy to help guide you in the right direction for resources.
