Who We Are

Wildfire Partners is a mitigation program to help home owners prepare for wildfire. As part of Boulder County’s Community Planning and Permits Department, we assist all mountain and foothills residents throughout the county.  Wildfire Partners is a nationally recognized model for wildfire mitigation that is incorporated into Boulder County's building code.

What We Do

We provide education on how to mitigate your home against the threat of wildfires.  Upon acceptance to our program, a mitigation specialist will visit your property to do an assessment.  We will send you a comprehensive report recommending actions to take.  Upon completion of these required items, you will receive certification that can be used as proof of mitigation for insurance purposes.
