The Wildfire Partners Program
Wildfire Partners is a mitigation program to help homeowners in Boulder County, Colorado prepare for wildfire. RedZone operates the program in cooperation with county staff.
The program is funded by Boulder County, a $1.5 million grant from the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and a $1.125 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Wildfire Partners assists all Boulder County mountain and foothills homeowners, regardless of the age of the home, whether mitigation has been performed in the past, or whether or not the homeowner has had difficulty obtaining insurance or selling the home.
Since 2014, more than 900 participating homeowners and 30 partner organizations have helped make this program a success. Wildfire Partners is a nationally recognized model for wildfire mitigation that is incorporated into the county’s building code.
