Colorado Wildland Fire Conference - Becoming a Fire Adapted Community

Jack Cohen, the USFS researcher who brought us the original notion of defensible space, 
kicked of the Colorado Wildland Fire Conference last week. 
The Colorado Wildland Fire Conference was held in Snowmass Village, Colorado last week.  This year's gathering was designed to provide the framework for becoming a Fire Adapted Community. To achieve that end, they welcomed anyone “wishing to learn more about how they can reduce their community’s vulnerability to wildfire.” Presentations were informative and engaging, and delivered to a diverse audience, from insurance agency representatives to firefighters and land managers.  See the recap and more photos here.
