Avimor has been designated as a Firewise community in accordance with the national Firewise Communities program. This program is a multi-agency effort designed to reach beyond the local fire service provided by the Eagle Fire Department and the Bureau of Land Management. To date, Avimor has mowed and applied herbicide on approximately 92 acres of natural open space to reduce the amount and continuity of fuels within, and adjacent to, the community. Proactive work such as this will continue to grow on a yearly basis. Avimor has also held a series of meetings with both the Eagle Fire Department and the Bureau of Land Management to develop effective strategies to prevent wildfires around the community.

"As developers, we share a responsibility with relevant regulatory authorities, our residents and the community-at-large to ensure we act responsibly. Pursuing an ongoing program such as the national Firewise Communities program demonstrates our commitment to a forward-looking program aimed at enhancing our community's overall sustainability."
-Dan Richter, General Manager
Avimor Fire Plan
As part of the Firewise development requirements, Avimor developed a Fire and Vegetation Management Plan. This plan provides guidelines for how the Avimor homeowners, the HOA, and the Avimor Conservation Director can reduce the potential risk of wildfire and improve the health and stability of the surrounding vegetation and wildlife.
