U.S. Wildfires Alert at Highest Level - 5

The nation's wildfire preparedness was raised to it's highest level today. Dozens of new fires started out West where it remains incredibly dry. Randy Eardley with the National Interagency Fire Center reports that resources are being stretched thin due to the number of large fires, occurrences in several states and in several geographic areas.

There are currently 15,000 firefighters battling up towards 70 fires larger than 100 acres in 12 states.

Whether or not global warming exists, fire damages in the U.S. are growing dramatically every year. Increased population densities in some of these fire prone areas exacerbate the risks of property and casualty losses.

It would be prudent for anyone building in these fabulous but high fire-risk areas, to utilize proven fire resistant technology, such as Blazeguard Fire-Rated Panels or Blazeguard Fire-Resistant Paint.

So, if you're thinking about that condo in Aspen, give us a call.
