Colorado U.S. Senators Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner have sent the Innovations in Forestry and Fire Mitigation report to U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. The report details recommendations from Colorado fire and forestry experts on the steps the federal government can take to better support the state’s wildfire mitigation efforts. The senators presented these recommendations by representatives from the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, Colorado State University, the Colorado Water Congress, County Commissioners from across the Front Range and West Slope, and other members of the forestry, conservation, and wildfire prevention community in May of this year. Those recommendations include more collaborative efforts by local and state agencies, fire prevention education, more federal resources and encouraging preventive efforts by homeowners.
