2020 Navajo Ranch Assessment

Final Navajo Ranch Firewise Action Plan

Letter of Appreciation to the AIM Team


“On Tuesday, April 28th, HOA Board Members and a few others expressed our thanks to Paul Branson (Huerfano County Wildfire Mitigation Coordinator) for all the proactive work he has done to help make Navajo Ranch a FIREWISE COMMUNITY.   Don Pino (Chairman of the HOA Mitigation/Wildfire Risk Management Committee) presented Paul with a letter of appreciation; in addition, Don presented Paul with a Pulaski Fire Axe.  Don purchased a True Tempered Axe Head and restored it by cleaning it up and attaching it to an American Hickory Axe Handle made by Beaver Tooth in Collegedale, Tennessee.

“The Pulaski Fire Axes is a special hand tool used in fighting wildfires for constructing firebreaks (it can both dig soil and chop wood).  These axes are revered by wildfire fighters and are often presented as recognition for specific acts of bravery and/or “over & above actions” taken by these specially trained folks.

“The Navajo Ranch HOA Board also commended Don Pino for his dedication to the Wildfire Mitigation Committee activities throughout our community.   Thank you both so much!! ”
