Thank You to All of Our Supporters

What an amazing response!

The Log Hill Fire firefighters and district board members asked for the community’s help in reaching a goal to raise $18,000 to complete an ongoing capital campaign to replace vital safety equipment and protect our firefighters. In less than 10 days, the Ouray County community stepped forward and donated over $14,500 and the donations continue to funnel in! These generous donations along with our $10,000 matching donation from an anonymous donor allowed us to reach our goal in a record time.

With this amazing response, we will be able to replace the expiring breathing cylinders to ensure our firefighters remain safe and protected as they respond to emergencies in our district or in response to calls from surrounding agencies. We will use any donations received beyond our original goal to continue to provide needed safety equipment to protect all of our firefighters.

Thank you once again for your amazing support! It is an honor to live and work in such a wonderful community.

Coming Soon--Community Chipping Program

Every year about this time, slash piles begin to appear in anticipation of the Log Hill Mesa Community Chipping Program brought to you by the West Region Wildfire Council​. The deadlines to sign up for Ouray County residents served by the program are: Ouray and surrounding communities (September 1), Log Hill Mesa (October 6) and Pleasant Valley and Dallas Creek (October 20). Details on the community chipping program are located at: http://www.cowildfire.org/chipping/ We realize that some homeowners and HOA's are concerned that building slash piles during the late summer may attract beetle activity, so please use your best judgement when preparing for the community chipping event.
