We’ve seen our share of wildfire damage servicing customers who have been affected by fire. It’s never good. The damage can be devastating, and remediation can take months. Hoping to allay the damage caused by wildfires, Boulder County is offering up to $500 to Boulder County residents who take steps to protect their homes and communities from wildfire. The rebate program is offered to all residents who are actively taking steps to reduce the spread of wildfire. There are several actions that qualify for the $500 rebate. Any resident who completes one or more of the following actions is eligible for the rebate.
