Colorado experienced the worst recorded wildfires last year, and two massive fires burned uncomfortably close to Estes Park. Wildfire is an increasingly common part of life in the West. The Town and its emergency response partners train for disasters like these so we can constantly be ready. We train for response, recovery, preparation and mitigation. You, as community members, do this too, as you work to mitigate fuels on your property and plan for evacuations. An important step is the debrief and after-action review. It helps us improve for next time, because unfortunately, there will be a next time.
