Fruita emergency preparedness

By  | 

Palisade, Colo. (KKCO) --- During a board of trustees meeting on Tuesday, officials in Palisade discussed how prepared the town really is in the event of a disaster.

The conversation covered both natural and man-made emergencies, referencing previous rock slides and the recent Quebec train accident.

But city officials say that they're ready for almost anything and the conversation is simply precautionary.

"I feel like we are fairly prepared," said Palisade Town Administrator, Richard Sales. "We did just do a wildfire mitigation project up in the watershed and that was really directed at trying to prevent wildfires, so we're trying to stay ahead of the curve."
