Private Property Mitigation

We use the Fire Wise standards for high risk subdivisions vegetation mitigation in our districts. This service is performed by our seasonal fuels crews when they are not fighting a wildland fire, funded by the Stevens and Watershed Grants.

2018 Chipper Rental Rebate Program

This program encourages the chipping of slash from wildfire fuels mitigation work conducted on any privately owned property in La Plata, Montezuma, Archuleta or Dolores Counties in Colorado. FireWise will reimburse the homeowner the lesser of $150/day or 50% of the cost, whether you rent a chipper yourself or hire a mitigation company to provide chipping services, assuming all requirements are met.
