All Fire/Fuel Mitigation Crew Members:

We are all looking forward to 2019 as another great year for fire/fuel mitigation at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. This will be the sixth year for volunteers to have a crew dedicated to the CMSP fire/fuel mitigation effort.

The existing fire/fuel mitigation crew eagerly welcomes new recruits, and look forward to sharing the fun and satisfaction of making the park a safer place fire wise for us all to enjoy.
We typically meet at the Maintenance Facility at the “top of the park”. Mitigation Days will typically start at 8:30AM or 9:00AM, depending on time of year and weather. End times are scheduled typically at 2:30PM. The Fire/Fuel Mitigation schedule will be posted online at www.friendsofcmsp.org. A hard copy of the schedule may also be found at the CMSP Visitors Center. Being a member of the Fire/Fuel Mitigation crew, you will receive emails announcing upcoming work days requesting your confirmation if you will be able to attend.
On work days, please wear/bring long pants, sturdy work boots/shoes, gloves, eye protection, plenty of water and a snack or lunch. Depending on the weather, consider rain gear, sunscreen, insect repellant, a hat, and a jacket.

If you are interested in joining the Fire/Fuel Mitigation crew, please contact Senior Ranger Darcy Mount at darcy.mount@state.co.us.  The crew is always lead by trained experienced crew leaders.
