Success Stories

About These Success Stories

These stories represent years of hard work by dedicated volunteers and community members. Many of them have been with the FireWise of SW Colorado since its inception in 2003 and/or the Neighborhood Ambassador Program which began in 2004. This is just a sampling of success stories -- more are happening every year.

On behalf of our local fire departments as well as our local, state, and federal partners, FireWise thanks these FireWise Ambassadors for their tireless dedication and persistence in working with their neighbors to improve their community’s wildfire preparedness, and ultimately that of southwest Colorado.
