Flood and wildfire season is approaching. You should know your
risks and make your plans to improve your outcomes.
The National Weather Service wants everyone in the United States to
be part of a Weather-Ready Nation. Colorado has more than its fair
share of floods, flash floods, and wildfires. You should be weather
alert and weather-ready, knowing how to stay safe when floods and
wildfires affect your area.
Governor Hickenlooper has proclaimed this week, March 12th through
18th, as Colorado Flood Safety and Wildfire Awareness Week.
