Proactive Fire Mitigation Volunteers
by Julia Shaw
30 volunteers from Gilpin and Coal Creek showed up on Saturday, August 17 to launch the first Saws and Slaws volunteer fire mitigation project in Gilpin. With support from Saws and Slaws Coal Creek, the group took down almost 70 trees from a property off of La Chula Road. The resulting firewood is being delivered to deserving Gilpin families for winter heating. For information about how you can volunteer in Gilpin County, contact project coordinators Julia Shaw or Sharon Perea at 303-642-0243.
