Taos Canyon Firewise Community

RECOGNITION 

Taos Canyon Firewise Community's application to Firewise Communities/USA Recognition Program was accepted, and we were approved in September 2014. Continuing to carry out and enhance our plan, we have been recognized annually as a Firewise Community.

DEVELOPMENT 

During our development, a Committee of Taos Canyon residents, aware of our high wildfire risk, created a Firewise Community Action Plan.
