Summit Assocation of Realtors offers residents wildfire assistance
July 18, 2017
Local Realtor group offers wildfire assistance
In the wake of the Peak 2 fire, the Summit Association of Realtors is offering assistance to residents in either physical or financial need to try to prevent future fires from impacting their homes.
Volunteers are available to help carry trees, logs and branches to the road and stack them in piles for elderly and physically disabled people who are unable to do so otherwise per the parameters of the free countywide chipping program that runs through the fall. Volunteers will be moving throughout the county during the Fire Prevention Days of Aug. 1-3.
Wildfire mitigation grants are also available through the Realtor group to help defray the costs associated with creating defensible space to protect homes. For either opportunity, residents can contact Sarah Thorsteinson, CEO of the Summit Association of Realtors at 970-468-8700, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
