The Front Range Roundtable was formed to "serve as a focal point for diverse stakeholder input into efforts to reduce wildland fire risks and improve forest health through sustained fuels treatment along the Colorado Front Range."
Community Protection Working Team
Community Protection Working Team Goals

The community protection team will serve as a communication, networking, and information exchange among professionals working on community wildfire protection, wildfire mitigation, and private landowner education. The team will increase stakeholder involvement in the Community Protection Team and devote one of the four larger Roundtable meetings each year to community protection issues.
