MHYC by the Numbers: Wildfire Mitigation

Monthly Infographic #4 – Wildfire Mitigation

Every summer in Colorado means wildfire season, but this summer has been record-breaking. In 2012, we have seen fires smash previous records in quantity, size, and destruction value, including the High Park Fire and the Waldo Canyon Fire. It has been stressful and sad to watch as outsiders or those fearing evacuation, yet completely devastating for others who have lost their homes or loved ones. But know that Mile High Youth Corps is fighting against these fires! Though our crews don’t run straight into the infernos, they do focus a large part of their summer work on preventative care. This infographic defines the wildfire mitigation work done by our Corpsmembers every summer. This work is common practice outside of our organization too, so let this visual be a lesson not just on MHYC, but on what you can do to keep your homes, families, and friends safe.

Watch for another infographic next month and know that your site visits are what has kept them going! Also, if you use Foursquare, follow our Summer of Service list and check-in when visit our project sites!
