Wildfire Prevention and Awareness Information
Representatives from the Vail Board of Realtors and Eagle River Fire Protection District were present at the September 9, 2016 Board Meeting to give a presentation on promoting community wildfire awareness. They presented information about two different programs that involve wildfire preparedness and prevention. The first is called RealFire, which is a voluntary wildfire mitigation program that offers in-depth property assessments conducted by experienced local fire professionals. The program helps homeowners identify actions they can take to measurably reduce wildfire hazards on their property. The second program is a Personalized Home Fire Risk Assessment offered by the Eagle River Fire Protection District. During a Home Fire Risk Assessment, members of ERFPD will visit your home, at a time convenient for you, and carry out an inspection of the inside and/or the outside of your home. These free visits focus on identification and awareness of the potential fire risks specific to your home, as well as what you can do to reduce or prevent the occurrence of a fire or other emergency situation.
