Wildfire Preparedness for Visitors
The recent wildfire disaster in Maui serves as a reminder that visitors to our community may be unfamiliar with emergency notification and evacuation procedures. Vail Fire and Emergency Services along with the Ready, Set, Go program have joined forces to pilot the wildfire preparedness program “Stay Wildfire Ready”, which is designed specifically for visitors. Short term rental owners and managers are encouraged to participate in this important free program. All that is required to participate is to post a Stay Wildfire Ready flyer in your unit. The flyer is provided by Vail Fire and Emergency Services and provides wildfire and evacuation preparedness information for visitors. The program will also provide reusable grocery bags for visitors. These reusable grocery bags have wildfire preparedness information printed on them. Short Term Rental owners or managers who participate will also be provided with a Stay Wildfire Ready baseball cap that features the Vail Fire logo. To learn more about the program and how you can participate contact Wildland Program Manager Paul Cada at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-477-3475.
