WRWC was established in 2007 as a collaborative effort to support interagency efforts to develop and implement plans to better mitigate the threat of catastrophic wildland fire to the communities and natural resources in the Colorado counties of Delta, Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel.
WRWC members represent private citizens, local, county, state and federal agencies with an interest in, and a commitment to address wildfire risk across the region. Members have worked with homeowners, fire districts and counties to develop Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) in the region. Our efforts take the planning effort one step further by assisting communities with education about wildfire risk and assistance with implementing steps to reduce wildfire risk through fuels reduction projects and the creation of defensible space.
The West Region Wildfire Council offers cost-share grant opportunities to assistance landowners and groups of landowners with the implementation of their wildfire mitigation projects and assistance with the development of community-based CWPPs.
