Those who support our program and help us achieve success
Since 2013, many organizations and groups have worked with Boulder County to develop and implement Wildfire Partners. We are grateful for their assistance and partnership. As our name implies, we all need to work together in partnership to help make our communities safer. Some of these partners have shared their logos with us; others have not.
If your organization or company is interested in becoming a Wildfire Partners program partner, or your organization is already working with us and you don’t see your logo below, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-441-1420.
Local Fire Protection Districts
Your local fire protection district is a great resource for learning more about the threat of wildfires and fire behavior in your specific area. We appreciate the valuable insight and knowledge that local fire officials provide to our team of mitigation specialists. If you have specific questions about wildfire risk in your area, contacting your local fire protection district is a good place to start.
Local, State, and Federal Government
Wildfire Partners is Boulder County’s wildfire mitigation program. The program also offers select services to residents of the ten local municipalities in the county. Our partnerships with local, state, and federal government agencies helps strengthen our community services.
All these organizations ensure a bright future for the Wildfire Partners program.
Wildfire Partners is recognized by many insurance companies as a valuable resource in educating home owners about wildfire mitigation. We currently have agreements in place with Allstate Insurance, State Farm and USAA to help with obtaining insurance.

Community Groups and Non-Profit Organizations

Community work groups like Saws and Slaws help homeowners with limited financial resources. What better way to help your neighbors and get to know them better than by attending a workday event! If you don’t have a community volunteer group that performs wildfire mitigation in your area, think about starting one.
Performing wildfire mitigation around your home can be a great benefit to selling your home. Attaining fire insurance can be a challenge for a new home owner. A home that is certified through the Wildfire Partners program provides added assurance to a buyer. We thank our local realtors for advising buyers and sellers about the value of our program.
