Later today, (Wed 6-25-2013) the Pitkin County Board of Commissioners will meet its new fire mitigation manager, Jerry Peetz. The position is the county’s latest move to ensure citizens are prepared should a wildfire occur. Aspen Public Radio’s Rebecca Kruth reports.

People tend to wait to mitigate when the danger of wildfires is already high.  So says Joe DiSalvo. Sheriff of Pitkin County.
