In our unending efforts to provide more opportunities for residents to reduce their wildfire risk, FireWise helped coordinate to achieve between 150 and 200 hand piles ignited on February 15th on 23 and 18-acre
projects on private land north of Dolores. Bruce Short (Shorth Forestry LLC) led the effort under a private contract as burn boss. The big achievements included getting our private burn boss, FireWise staff, Cortez Fire, Dolores Fire, USFS, and BLM folks all out at the same time.
FireWise now has several people who have been through the Colorado Certified Burn Boss training. We are available to answer your questions and direct you to the right places to do your burning right... though with the current weather patterns, you may be leaning to Fall/Winter 2018/2019 for any burning other than piles in a big open area with direct water resources.
