Wildfire Prevention Resources

Check out the links below for valuable resources and information regarding wildfire preparedness and education.

Wildfire Evacuation Preparedness

The best time to prepare yourself and your family in case for an emergency evacuation is before you are called to act. This page is intended to help you prepare in case you need to evacuate your home due to a wildfire. The more prepared you are, the more effectively the Aspen Fire Department can protect you and your homes if a wildland fire threatens your neighborhood.

Wildfire Mitigation Assessment

In an effort to reduce the wildfire hazards in our community Aspen Fire Protection District has begun offering wildfire mitigation assessments for private residences, neighborhoods, and sub-divisions. With a thorough assessment and proper mitigation efforts your home’s chances of wildfire survival increase dramatically.

Wildfire Community Action Fund

Wildfires are on the rise, burning more often and more destructively. It takes community action and collaboration to reduce our collective risk and build resilience. Aspen Fire's new Wildfire Community Action Fund is accomplishing proactive on-the-ground work for wildfire mitigation, fuels reduction, improved forest health, watershed protection, and habitat restoration on a landscape scale.
