Wildfires have erupted across Colorado the past several years. Until recently, those fires have not threatened United Power members in our mountain or plains territories. However, recent wildfires near Boulder and Nederland have increased the potential for impact to both the cooperative and its members.
We urge our members to be informed about wildfire threats near your home and prepared to respond to protect yourself and your family. With some of these fires emerging and spreading rapidly, as was the case with the Cameron Peak and East Troublesome fires, it's critical to have a prepared emergency plan and detailed knowledge of escape routes from your area in the event of a wildfire or other emergency situation.
As your cooperative, we will try to keep you up-to-date with the latest available information.
