We’re getting ready for wildfire season and we want you to join us! Residents in Palmer Lake, Lake of the Rockies, Red Rocks Ranch and Colorado Estates neighborhoods will have opportunity to see first-hand what it takes to safely evacuate their neighborhood if their home were threatened by wildfire.  After the drill, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with emergency responders and get information to help you prepare your family and home from wildfire season. Lunch will be provided! 

 

The evacuation drill is Saturday, October 2, but we invite you to get more information and sign up during a community meeting Wednesday, September 15, Palmer Lake Elementary Gym, 115 Upper Glenway at 6:00 PM. If you can’t attend the meeting, you can still participate by registering online www.elpasoco.com/2021wildfiredrill.

 

If you don’t live in the   Palmer Lake, Lake of the Rockies, Red Rocks Ranch or Colorado Estates neighborhoods, you can still take steps today to prepare for the inevitable. Register your phones so you can be alerted if an emergency threatens your neighborhood. If we can’t alert you, we can’t reach you! Register your phones today -- visit www.elpasoteller.org.
