Medical expenses for Myra, organized by Tanya Koch

On Sunday, July 24th 2022, a Fort Morgan First Responder was in a severe car accident. Myra, a Volunteer Fire Fighter has suffered life altering injuries which will effect her daily life from here on out. She is a compassionate human who has dedicated the last year to serving her community. Myra selflessly responds to the residents of Fort Morgan when they call upon her in their moments of need. She was airlifted to Denver from the scene of her accident, where she has battled to adapt to her new way of life.
Myra will be coming home soon and needs your help! Due to the extent of her injuries her family will need to get her back and forth to Denver for several upcoming doctor appointments and future procedures.
We are asking for our community to come together and lift Myra up and return the kindness she has bestowed upon all of us. No amount is too small; even a “share” goes along way. Please help us, help Myra, as she recovers and learns to navigate this new way of life.

Here is the go fund me page or if you would like there is also a account set up at Bank of Colorado under the name Micaela Pablo-Andres.

We've added north central Colorado into a fire weather watch for near critical conditions with a combination of strong winds and low humidity on Friday from 11 AM - 7 PM. You all know the drill by now: please avoid any activity that may introduce an open flame outdoors or could cause a spark.

Please be extra cautious not only tomorrow but days to come with no moisture we have been extremely busy. So please NO BURNING.

Morgan County is under Extreme fire danger. We are under RED FLAG warning through Friday evening at 09:00 PM. There is NO Open Burning.

Friday's forecast includes:

...EXTREMELY DANGEROUS FIRE-WEATHER EPISODE ON FRIDAY ACROSS THE FOOTHILLS AND PLAINS...

...VERY STRONG WINDS ACROSS THE EASTERN PLAINS ON FRIDAY...

On Friday, high-impact and dangerous weather conditions are
likely across a large part of northeast Colorado.

From late Friday morning through Friday afternoon and Friday
evening, an episode of extremely dangerous fire-weather conditions is expected across the foothills and plains. A volatile
combination of 50-60 mph southerly wind gusts, temperatures in the upper 70s to the 80s, and widespread relative humidity of 7 to 11percent will support the potential for extreme fire behavior
including very rapid fire spread.

Please no lighty lighty burny burny!
21/04/2022

Please no lighty lighty burny burny!

It's not often we see "Extreme" fire weather conditions, but Friday will be one of those days!

Avoid any and all outdoor activities that may produce a spark.

"Let's all do our part - don't let it start!"

Grass fire season is upon us and it looks to be one of the busiest in years. One vital piece to us is our local farmers and ranchers with tractors and heavy equipment. You are our saving grace in a bunch of fires. We are going to compile a list of available equipment from farmers in our area that would like to be put on that list to contact in case we need you. Please reach out to Chief Trae Boehm so he can put the list together 970-380-3553 or email [email protected]. Thank you for all you do.

We have expanded Red Flag Warnings across the entire eastern plains and urban corridor. Did we mention 𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐢𝐝 𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐝𝐨𝐨𝐫 𝐛𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 by chance? Just in case, 𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐢𝐝 𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐝𝐨𝐨𝐫 𝐛𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 as well as any activity that may produce a spark.
