Homeowner series on wildfire risk

Local fire officials and experts will offer homeowners insight into the risks of wildfire at the next installment of a speaker series hosted by the Forest Health Task Force.

Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue chief Jeff Berino, U.S. Forest Service wildfire expert Ross Wilmore and others will discuss how the drought and the changing conditions in the forest will impact wildfire danger this year.

The event is set for 7 p.m. April 24 at the Frisco Community and Senior Center.

"It's intended to give homeowners, property owners and visitors a greater understanding of wildfire behavior and wildfire risk," Forest Health Task Force member Howard Hallman said. "Knowledge is always good."

The series will continue monthly through August with topics to include preparing essential infrastructure and services, potential implications of a catastrophic wildfire and real-life homeowner wildfire experiences.
