The Colorado Cattleman's Association (CCA) honored DHSEM worker Christe Coleman with the CCA’s 2017 Public Servant of the Year award. According to the CCA newsletter: "Through her close work with the Colorado Department of Agriculture-State Veterinarian’s Office during the wildfires in the south-central area of the state, Christe demonstrated her commitment to Colorado beef producers. Christe played a key role for local  ranchers,  the local sheriff, emergency managers, and the U.S. Forest Service incident management team to help solve problems of agricultural land access during those fires. She also helped to protect ranchers’ operations, land, and cattle. She served as a great liaison between the ranching community and the incident management team that was mitigating the wildfire issues."
