To the Editor:

Concerned Citizens of Grand County, we need your help.

The Grand County Firefighters Association will be receiving an Official Proclamation from the Grand County Board of County Commissioners next Tuesday, designating June 3-9 as Grand County Wildfire Awareness Week. We are looking for a core group of individuals from the community to serve on the planning committee.

If you are a resident of the county and are concerned about the threat of wildfire, WE NEED YOU. Our meetings will be held on the fourth Thursday of each month, starting on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 9 a.m. or 5 p.m., depending on your schedules. Please email me at solson@grandfire.org as soon as possible. Feel free to pass this message on to anyone you think might be interested.

It is not a question of IF, but WHEN the next major wildfire will occur. Will it be in Grand County? Are we prepared? I look forward to hearing from you.

Schelly Olson

Public information officer

Grand Fire Protection District No. 1
