Wildfire Partners

In 2014, Boulder Rural introduced Wildfire Partners as a voluntary program to help homeowners prepare for wildfire. Boulder County encouraged residents to apply for this unique opportunity to receive valuable wildfire mitigation assistance and rebates.

Over 8,100 letters were sent to Boulder County homeowners and the program accepted 500 homeowners.

We are pleased to announce the program has received funding for 2016, and again we are encouraging those who didn’t sign up before to do so now. Boulder Rural has over 20 homeowners currently participating in the plan.

The Wildfire Partners Advisory Committee, in which Boulder Rural is represented, met recently to review the program and make it better for this year.
