You will hear from your elected officials, including a message from Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham. Presentations will include creating effective and innovative fuel breaks, building resilience through community collaboration, exploring multiple funding opportunities, evacuation planning for horses, and
more! Closed captioning services will be provided.
