Durango Area Association of Realtors had an excellent 2nd Quarter meeting this morning.  A lot of great information was presented that will help us better serve our clients. 

 Scott Davis from the Durango Fire Protection District  gave us an update on the fire and answered a lot of questions.  We also heard from a panel of insurance companies on how the fire may affect homeowners' policies.  

If you have evacuated your home, be sure to check with your insurance company--some policies will have loss of use coverage for this type of situation.  If you haven't already, now would be the time to check on flood insurance.  With the monsoon rains coming after a burn, some areas may  experience flooding, mud slides and debris slides.  

A little fire mitigation goes a long way--be sure you have a minimum 5 foot non-combustible space around your home.

The unprecedented open area and forest closures are an important safe guard--please respect them and encourage others to do the same.  Firefighters and other emergency responders are already carrying a heavy load--let's do our part to help avoid additional incidents in the area.

Many thanks to the firefighters and emergency personnel on the front lines, and all who have rallied within the community and surrounding areas to offer help and support.
