Due to the current guidelines regarding Covid-19, the Upper Arkansas Valley Wildfire Foundation Board and Academy Coordinators are regrettably cancelling the Summer Colorado Wildland Fire & Incident Management Academy scheduled for June 1-7th at Coal Ridge High School in New Castle.  In reviewing the county reopening guidelines issued by the Colorado Association of Local Health (CALPHO) Health Organization it simply will not be feasible to continue with emergency management and wildfire training this summer.  Our top priority is your health and safety.

We will begin planning for the 2021 Winter CWFIMA.  This academy will be held at University of Colorado Springs (UCCS), January 4-10, 2021 and may even extend a few days to better accommodate anticipated changes.   

Stay safe, healthy and remember to take care of yourself in these uncertain times.  We look forward to seeing you in January 2021!
