Reno, Nevada -
The IAFC expresses its deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Christina Randall, a valued member of the IAFC’s Wildland Fire Policy Committee (WFPC), who passed suddenly today while attending the IAFC's Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) conference in Reno, Nevada.
Randall was an expert on mitigating wildland and WUI fires. She has spent the past 14 years as the wildfire mitigation administrator for the Colorado Springs Fire Department after 19 years with the U.S. Forest Service and held a bachelor’s degree in natural resources management.
In addition to her service on the WFPC, Randall served on the Wildland Urban Interface Mitigation Committee of the National Wildfire Coordinating Group. She oversaw the Colorado Springs wildfire mitigation program, including risk assessment, fuels and grant management, community education and outreach, business outreach, and development review.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and all who knew her. She will be sorely missed.
