Fire Wise Plant Materials
This pamphlet is based on and borrowed heavily from a publication by Chuck Dennis of the Colorado State Forest Service, Colorado State University. Thanks to our neighbors to the north. It contains Fire Wise landscaping information on how landscaping can be aesthetically pleasing while reducing potential wildfire fuel. Plant choice, spacing and maintenance are critical. Your landscape, and the plants in it must be maintained to retain their Fire Wise properties.

The Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) program
While many wildfires cause little damage to the land and pose few threats to fish, wildlife and people downstream, some fires create situations that require special efforts to prevent further catastrophic damage after the fire. Loss of vegetation exposes soil to erosion; runoff may increase and cause flash flooding; sediments may move downstream and damage houses or fill reservoirs; and put endangered species and community water supplies may be at risk. BAER addresses these situations with the goal of protecting life, property, water quality, and deteriorated ecosystems from further damage after the fire is out. Concern for possible post-fire effects on fish, wildlife, archeological sites and endangered species is often a primary consideration in the development of a BAER plan.
The Ready, Set, Go! Program
The program seeks to develop and improve the dialogue between fire departments and the residents they serve. Engaging in this dialogue is particularly important for the fire service, because national studies have shown that firefighters are uniquely respected in their communities and can project a trusted voice to the public preparedness appeal. They can also explain what fire resources are available during an event and the role that individuals can play in preparedness and early evacuation – if called for by their local officials – to increase the safety of residents and responding firefighters to a wildland fire
