REALFire Program
FREE Wildfire property assessments are now available!

Developed by the Vail Board of REALTORS® and Eagle County, REALFire ®assists homeowners in identifying specific actions they can take to reduce wildfire hazards. 

This program provides residents with many benefits:

  • An in-depth, on-site assessment conducted by experienced fire professionals;

  • An opportunity for property owners to identify mitigation actions unique to their property;

  • A detailed follow up report with customized mitigation actions designed to measurably reduce the wildfire risk to their property;

  • An opportunity to earn a REALFire certificate acknowledging their mitigation achievements. This type of recognition can be used to enhance real estate transactions, and can be shared with local insurance providers.
