Lower North Fork Fire Final Update: 4/2/12 1720:

This will be the last Lower North Fork Fire update.

We will no longer be providing updates about the Lower North Fork Fire via this blog.

The purpose of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Emergency blog is to provide updates regarding an incident during its emergency and immediate response stages. The fire is now 100% contained and all evacuation orders have been lifted. With these announcements there is no need for the frequent updates provided by this blog.

We recognize that while the emergency and immediate response stages have passed the recovery stage is just beginning. Please visit http://www.jeffco.us/ to learn more about Jefferson County's ongoing recovery efforts.

The Mountain Resource Center will also continue to function as a resource center (see prior blog post).

The use of social media during an active emergency situation is an ongoing learning effort. We would love to hear back from the community about our use of this blog and our twitter account (@jeffcosheriffco). Please write your comments about our use of social media to jeffcosheriff@gmail.com.

During an emergency do not contact Jefferson County Sheriff's Office via social media. Always call 911 in an emergency and 303-271-0211 in a non-emergency.
