Opportunity Fund Updates
In June we ran a Wildfire Awareness and Preparedness month newsletter story and told you about two FACO members, Fire Adapted Bailey and Platte Canyon FPD,
who worked with partners to hold two Personal Evacuation Planning Workshops
with 134 attendees. Platte Canyon FPD
also completed their outreach efforts in the Burland Subdivision
, with their award and are using their remaining opportunity funds to offset costs in their free community curbside chipping program. These two projects were supported with FACO's FACO Opportunity Fund
Wildfire Adapted Partnership
also recently completed an Opportunity Fund project to create an ArcGIS story map for their organization. Learn more about the story of WAP and the communities they support at WAP: Adapting to Wildfire in Southwest Colorado Story Map
Two Rivers Wildfire Coalition
is another FACO member making steady progress with a little bit of help from an Opportunity Fund award to provide initial outreach and project signage. TRWC was awarded $2,660 as part of the total $17,810 awards given by Fire Adapted Colorado
to nine agencies in 2022.
