READYColorado Blog: Wildland Fire Insurance: Property and Financial Preparedness

Wildfires continue to be a growing threat in the Rocky Mountain Region where population is booming in high-risk wildland-urban interface (WUI) areas. While many people move to and live in Colorado for its forests, mountains and breathtaking views, they don’t always see the potential risks of losing their homes to wildfire – even in suburban neighborhoods. It is critical homeowners understand the risks of living in wildfire prone areas, the potential insurance impacts and what steps they should take to protect themselves, their property and personal finances.

The youth at Mount View Youth Service Center had a few extra special treats for Easter this year! As part of their cooking education class on Friday (led by Michael Winston and Todd Paige), the youth were able to participate in some traditional Easter festivities by decorating 100 cookies and using food coloring to dye 100 hard boiled eggs.

On Easter day, the youth were treated to a morning surprise of cinnamon rolls, rolled and iced by Todd and Paula. For Easter dinner, the youth were treated to a Greek family meal prepared by Dina, Kirk, and Julie. This delicious meal consisted of gyros, greek salad, fruit, chocolate milk, and for an extra special treat, baklava!

 

It was a wonderful day of celebrating and enjoying a few Easter festivities.
