Teller county fire mitigation business takes off as Colorado prepares for what many believe will be another active wild fire season.

The Delesdenier family said during the Springer and Waldo Canyon Fires they began helping people clean up their property in an attempt to mitigate the threat of wild fires spreading to their home.

As more people requested their services, Trusted Mitigation was born.

“It’s very quickly starting to boom.  We’ve been getting phone calls left and right from different people,” said Matthew Delesdenier, who owns the company with his wife, Cindy.

The family said this is the first licensed and bonded business to specialize in mitigation in Colorado.

“There are tree-cutting businesses out there, but they don’t do what we do.  We clear brush away from the home, we rake, de-limb trees and stuff like that,” said Cindy.

Trusted Mitigation works closely with home insurance companies, local Fire Departments and the U.S. Forest Service to ensure the work they are doing will effectively mitigate the threat of fire as much as possible.

The company said it is trying to reach out to the community in an effort to prepare families for the wildfire season that is already underway in Teller County.

It said it is willing to travel as needed, and the first estimate is free.  For more information, check out the company’s website by clicking here.
