Colorado's wildfires strike quickly and give little time for immediate preparation. It's often not until after the fire that the ramifications of loss and damage become clear.
During and after a wildfire, a person's health can be affected in numerous ways. Information is available that can help you and those you care about remain healthy both during the wildfire and throughout the recovery period.
