Welcome to Vail, North America's Premier International Mountain Resort Community

Wildfire Mitigation

The wildland fire response team assures that uncontrolled fires in the surrounding forested areas do not burn within or into the Town of Vail.

The team evaluates the fire threat, initiates attack and attempts to protect homes built on the hillsides when threatened by fire. Fire Department personnel participate on the countywide wildfire suppression team and aid in sending equipment and personnel to assist other agencies when requested.
