This month Dave Moore talks with Pueblo Fire Captain Woody Percival about important fire preparedness tips no matter if you live in the county, the mountains or a populated part of town.
Even though southern Colorado had a late May snow and is seeing some rain, Captain Percival explains that we still need to be aware of potential fires. He says a disaster like the Marshall Fire, Black Forest or Waldo Canyon Fire CAN happen in Pueblo County if we aren’t careful.
He explains how you can be fire wise and lists preventative measures you can do at your home, so if a fire does break out in your neighborhood you’re likely protected.
He also details what weather conditions are a perfect recipe for a devastating fire and what activities are and are NOT permitted during those times.
