Wildfire preparation

As this has been a dry winter outside of the high country here in Colorado, many are worrying about the possibility of wildfires. The Government Accountability Office just released a letter outlining "Federal Agency Efforts to Develop a Cohesive Strategy to Address Wildland Fire Threats." On the Colorado level, the Governor's office has a collection of publications for homeowners to prepare for the wildfire season: http://www.colorado.gov/oemc/links/fire/index.htm. The Governor also has made $2 million available for the Emergency Management Fund for wildfire preparation and suppression activities (Executive Order D 008 06).
