Produced by The Story Group, Unacceptable Risk follows Colorado firefighters who are responding to record-breaking wildfires. The film examines how climate changes are transforming Colorado's fire environment, bringing higher temperatures, drier fuels, and diseases to forests, which combine to create a volatile situation for firefighters and communities.

The Film Campaign

We'll be bringing the film to locations across Colorado this spring to jumpstart dialogue about climate change solutions and how to address the growing threats from wildfires. The film is available to fire departments, community groups, environmental organizations and anyone interested in sharing the film with friends and neighbors and getting involved with these critical issues.
