Slash and Mitigation

The Sugarloaf Fire Department's slash drop off site will open on Monday Sept. 20.

---It will be located outside the horse corral at SLFPD Station 1 (1677 Lost Angel Road).
---Please look for the large sign designating the drop off zone.
---All slash (tree branches) 6 inches in diameter or smaller will be accepted in one pile. Please pile slash with the butt ends of the branch facing the fire station. A jumbled pile makes chipping more costly and may cause the program to close prematurely.
---Burned logs will also be accepted in a separate pile.
---Green logs from new mitigation activities will also be accepted in a third area.
---No other materials can be accepted (old posts, 2x4's, railroads ties, etc.) The program will continue as long as space and/or funding permit.

The Sugarloaf Fire Department will continue it's efforts to organize community based fire mitigation efforts. SLFPD will continue to look for grants and assistance from appropriate County, State, and Federal partner agencies. Updates on these efforts will also be available on the Department's website. In the interim, please read the CWPP (Community Wildfire Prevention Program) currently available on the website. The Fire Department also needs a member(s) from each neighborhood to volunteer as a Neighborhood Liaison. The Liaison will work closely with the Fire Department to organize community meetings, encourage widespread participation, and set goals and timelines. Please consider volunteering, vibrant community organizers will be critical to the success of any mitigation efforts.

Reseeding and Erosion Control

The Sugarloaf Fire Department is working in partnership with the Colorado State Forest Service, the CSU Extension Service and the U.S. Geological Survey to develop best practices for reseeding, post-fire forest rehabilitation and erosion control. The guidelines will begin to be available here starting on Monday Sept. 20 and will continue to evolve as new information becomes available.
