Pack for the Platte

PACK FOR THE PLATTE

a unique and challenging fundraiser celebrating National Wildfire Community Preparedness Weekend and benefiting the Coalition for the Upper South Platte (CUSP) and its Wildfire Suppression Program

 

WHO: CUSP, partnering agencies, and local fire departments. Sponsored in part by Newmont Cripple Creek and Victor Mine.

                                                                                                          

WHAT:    The Coalition for the Upper South Platte (CUSP), a long-standing resource protection nonprofit, is hosting the Pack for the Platte, a fundraiser to support wildfire suppression and mitigation. This event is themed around National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day to raise awareness on the importance of mitigation. Modeled after a traditional 5k race, this event breaks with tradition by providing a different kind of challenge, an important element in becoming a wildland firefighter - The Work Capacity Test. Annually, wildland firefighters must test their stamina and endurance. The most arduous level of this test requires carrying 45 pounds for 3 miles, completed within 45 minutes, known as the Pack Test.

                   

WHEN:           Sunday, May 7, 2017

                        New Santa Fe Regional Trail, Baptist Rd. Trailhead, Monument, CO                       

 Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. Firefighters begin test at 9 a.m. General public begins at 11am

                       

WHERE:        New Santa Fe Regional Trail

WHY:  CUSP works with communities to proactively prepare for, and adapt to, wildfire. When wildfires strike, we are there to assist with suppression. CUSP has a crew of nine certified firefighters on our Wildland Fire Suppression Team. The mission of this specialized team is to protect water quality, economic, ecological, and community values of the Upper South Platte Watershed, which provides water to more than 75% of Colorado’s Central Front Range residents. CUSP works tirelessly to uphold this mission through fuels mitigation, forest resiliency programs and wildfire suppression activities, with emphasis placed on the safety of the watershed community and of our wildland firefighters. In addition to working with other fire crews in the region on suppression when wildfires threaten communities and critical watersheds, we also use essential tools such as prescribed fire to proactively reduce the risk of high severity wildfires.
