Dear Friend,

Earlier this week, I visited with local officials, county commissioners, and emergency personnel responding to the Junkins and Beulah Hill fires in southern Colorado.

I stopped by the Westcliffe Command Center where I met with local officials and Beth Lund, the Type 1 Incident Commander overseeing the Junkins fire response. I also attended a wildfire and public safety roundtable with Pueblo County commissioners and emergency service staff to discuss the Beulah Hill fire and wildfire prevention at the Pueblo Emergency Operations Center.


Colorado is fortunate to have such dedicated men and women fighting to protect Coloradans, their homes, and their personal property, and I’m thankful for their service. I had productive conversations with our local officials responsible for responding to these fires, and I’ll continue to work with community responders to ensure Colorado has the resources it needs to contain, mitigate, and prevent these blazes.
