We work to improve the State of Colorado’s mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery efforts for cultural and historic resources

What is the CHR Task Force?

Working together, the cultural and historic resources and emergency management communities in Colorado organize and strengthen our state's assets and capabilities by:

  • Building relationships between the emergency management and cultural and historic resources communities

  • Advocating to incorporate cultural and historic resources into state plans

  • Responding to disasters by coordinating the emergency support function 11d in the State Emergency Operations Center

  • Drawing upon existing resources and subject matter expertise to provide assistance to cultural and historic resources during disasters

Together, emergency management personnel and the Cultural & Historic Resource community can organize and strengthen CHR assets and capabilities. The Cultural and Historic Resources (CHR) Task Force advocates for the incorporation of cultural and historic resources into the State of Colorado’s mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery efforts prior to, during, and after a disaster event
