Message from Emergency Preparedness
By Emergency Preparedness Officer Sharyn B.

Last weekend, Pueblo County experienced two fires simultaneously-the Vision Hills Fire and the EVRAZ Fire. The National Weather Service Fire Prediction office indicates Pueblo County will experience Significant Wildland Fire Potential, lasting through April.
Bora winds, the high winds experienced this past weekend, have relative low humidity. But, any fire ignited has the potential to spread quickly. The Vision Hills Fire grew to over 100 acres and 25 homes were evacuated. Multiple Fire Departments assisted with helping contain the EVRAZ Fire, which lasted two days.
Being prepared for a fire emergency might involve evacuating a building, specific area of a building or site or the entire building or site. In the event of a fire emergency. follow the directions below along with any direction coming from building authorities.
If you see or smell smoke:

  • Activate a fire alarm if the fire is in your building.
  • Call Security at XXXX.
  • If the fire is small and you are trained to do so, use a fire extinguisher to put out the fire. If the fire is large or has heavy smoke, get out of the building immediately and go to the nearest assigned and safe muster point.
  • If able to do so safely, secure workstations and retrieve car keys. If the order to evacuate is given and you are unable to retrieve keys, carpool with a coworker to the designated evacuation point.
  • Following direction from building authorities, quickly but safely evacuate the building and proceed to assigned muster points or to vehicles. Fire wardens will account for personnel at the muster points.
  • Listen to and follow the directions from your fire wardens. Stay with them until the situation is resolved and the officer in charge announces it is safe to return to your work area or gives additional instructions.
  • NEVER re-enter a burning building.
  • Advise fire wardens of anything that may prevent quick evacuation. They will assign personnel to assist in an emergency.
