We've officially received 501(c)(3) status, and we're developing a fire protection plan, conducting HIZ audits, and applying for grants to fund fire mitigation projects and emergency evacuation egress routes. Meanwhile, we will engage in community outreach and education to help residents of Crescent Park learn ways to reduce fire danger in their homes and properties. We need your help. Please consider volunteering with and/or donating to the CPCFPA.
Project 1. HIZ Audits
Our first project involved conducting home walk-through evaluations and fire protection education by a trained Home Ignition Zone (HIZ) inspector. These HIZ audits cover structure hardening (outdoor only) with comments on defensible space in Zones 1 and 2 surrounding the home. It is a great chance for community residents to attend and learn how to best protect their homes. Having our homes inspected and simple protective repairs executed, we will meet criteria to become a Firewise® community. If you want to volunteer your home for an inspection, please email CPCFPA President Barbara Mazurowsky
Project 2. Fire Mitigation
Our 2022 slash chipping and collection day is October 1st. All properties in Crescent Park are eligible. If you wish to participate, notify Bob Grimm firstname.lastname@example.org BY SEPTEMBER 17th. Include your name, address, email, and phone number. We request that you please prepare your slash pile according to the instructions emailed to you BY SEPTEMBER 24th. We need to see all the piles and plan the time and cost of the chipper in advance. You must be available to help load your slash onto the chipper or the trucks.
Project 3. Emergency Egress TBD
One of the CPCFPA's most important projects will be to obtain grants to establish possible emergency evacuation routes. In the meantime, we are identifying those routes and speaking to the property owners in those areas. All our work is in conjunction with the Coal Creek Canyon Fire Department. Stay tuned for more developments as we progress in developing this project. Do so by signing up for updates
