Property Owners Fire and Safety Information

The mission of CL FIRES is to provide fire prevention, wild fire mitigation, and personal and family safety information to Crystal Lakes property owners and community neighbors. CL FIRES, in cooperation with Bruce Benninghoff – a consulting forester, the Crystal Lakes Greenbelt Management Committee, the Crystal Lakes CWPP committee and the Crystal Lakes Volunteer Fire Department, will provide websites where everyone  can access current information. The purpose will be to consider resources that provide information about the pine beetle infestation in Larimer County and current mitigation efforts. The CL FIRES’ goal is to become  another source of current and critical information in fighting this epidemic, fire safety and wildfire resource information.  CBS 4 Denver has information about home inventories, defensible space, and home owner insurance. See website below.


Additional information resources will provide websites that help inform property owners and community neighbors about personal safety and property safety ideas.  This informational webpage is in development and will continue to offer important resource websites. Please help us; we encourage everyone to offer suggestions for this section.
