On Monday morning, firefighters, experts, and professionals from around the country gathered in Colorado Springs for a forum on creating wildfire-resilient communities.
Experts on the panel say that the 5 biggest wildfires in Colorado have happened over the last 12 years. That number does not include the Waldo Canyon fire.
Director of the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control Mike Morgan spoke at the panel today.
"It's about getting the groups together from local governments, from state governments, to talk about what are the things we can do collaboratively what are the things that are easy to accomplish to make sure we're all pulling in the same direction," said Morgan.
