Dozens of wildfires, fueled by hot temperatures, strong winds, and low humidity, have been affecting parts of Colorado in what has been described as the worst fire season in the history of the state.
Monitoring the Wildfires
Organizations that could be affected by the Colorado wildfires should continue to monitor local news and advisories from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Colorado Division of Emergency Management. Additional information can also be found in Guy Carpenter’s CAT-i bulletin on the wildfires.
