Contractors and handymen are invited to a FREE wildfire mitigation ignition-resistant home retrofit workshop.

Many of the 9,000 homes in western Boulder County are in need of minor retrofits to reduce their vulnerability to wildfire. Homeowners and Wildfire Partners are actively soliciting contractors to perform this work and fill the current void in the marketplace.

Refreshments to follow workshop.  Please park at the back NE part of the parking lot, beyond the Meeting Room Sign (marked with yellow parking space lines).
 

Workshop participants will learn about:

•  Ignition-resistant retrofit work
•  Upcoming changes to Boulder County building codes
•  Best practices for building or retrofitting at-risk homes

Thousands of homes in Boulder are in need of retrofit changes or updates to help survive a wildfire. Wildfire Partners currently maintains a list of forestry contractors as a service to homeowners participating in this program, and we are looking to launch a similar list for home retrofit work. Contractors wanting to be added to the list should contact Ryan Ludlow at 720-564-2641 or email rludlow@bouldercounty.org.

The workshop is sponsored by the Boulder County Land Use Department and Wildfire Partners.
