Boulder County Wildfires: Marshall Fire and Middle Fork Fire News
Thank you for your interest in volunteering.  We are coordinating efforts to help with local agencies and the state. Learn more at If you are interested in joining the volunteer effort, please:

STEP 1:  DO NOT show up at the affected areas. The arrival of unexpected and unaffliated volunteers and material donations will interfere with response efforts.

STEP 2: Sign up for our Colorado Responds E-newsletter for continued updates.

STEP 3: Register for a Volunteer Account to sign up for volunteer opportunities as they become available.

STEP 4: Need to sign up a large group? Check out How To Create A Team.

STEP 5: HANG TIGHT while responding agencies assess what is needed and begin posting opportunities for volunteers.

STEP 6: Visit the Colorado Responds Website for current details on material donation needs. Thank you for all of your help! 

***NOTICE: Disasters take time. There will be plenty of opportunities to volunteer in the days, weeks, months, and even years to come. While agencies and first responders are still in disaster response mode, the need for volunteers will be on hold. Once we enter the recovery stage, there will be an increased need for volunteer roles. The best thing to do now is register for a volunteer account and hang tight until volunteer opportunities become available and are posted to this site.
