The City of Louisville and LFPD are here to support and encourage the citizens of Louisville to do their part in keeping our communities safe against the ever-present threat of wildfire. Wildfire Safety and prevention is EVERYONE’S responsibility, and it is up to every homeowner to take the necessary steps to prepare their home against wildfire.
The Louisville Fire Protection District has been conducting interviews internally and working with the City of Louisville to consolidate lessons learned and best practices and share recommended improvements.
A Facilitated Learning Analysis (FLA) was requested by Mountain View Fire Department, Louisville Fire Department, Boulder County and led by the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control (DFPC) to review the Marshall Fire, which occurred on December 30, 2021, in Boulder County. The FLA was requested to gain a deeper understanding of what occurred during the Marshall Fire response. The report is intended to be an educational and training tool for first responders. The report will help those directly involved in the incident learn and understand what occurred during response efforts and provide the ability to share that information with others moving forward.
The Marshall Fire that occurred on December 30, 2021, has been deeply impactful to our residents and the community. The outpouring of support from many avenues over the past year for those affected and experiencing hardship is incredible and inspirational.
