Grand County Wildfire Council

The question is not whether a wildfire will or will not occur in Grand County, but when and where will it occur. GCWC helps prepare citizens for wildfire through education/action. Statistics suggest that for every $1 spent in mitigation now, there is a $4 return on avoided losses in the future.
