Review for Coalition for the Upper South Platte (CUSP), Lake George, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CUSP {CoalitionUpperSouthPlatte} is an amazing and professional non-profit organization that has taken the lead in the State of Colorado regarding the protecton of one of our most valuable assests, and that is drinking water for the population of our state. CUSP and each one of their employees are upstanding leaders where our environment is concerned. CUSP is a valuable asset to our Colorado clean drinking water supplies, and our overall environment. CUSP stepped up to the plate after the devastating Colorado Buffalo Creek fire and the following Hayman Fire, and now the Waldo Canyon Fire. CUSP began by single handed raising funds to assist individuals and communities with the clean up after the Buffalo Creek fire and the huge Hayman fire, which included having the resources, expert knowledge and staff to assist with items and a superb ability for gathering volunteers {boots on the ground} to actually do the work, at the same time, teaching the volunteers how to help with this same work in flood mitigation, and fire mitigation for the future. CUSP has graciously and willingly taken on the roll of being extremely responsbile to assist others to learn what needs to be done to help prevent wildland fires and to prevent ash, and mud flow from destroying properties and well heads. CUSP gives on a daily basis to our communities for the betterment of our environment and our clean drinking water. I am most thankful that CUSP goes to great lengths to give all volunteers and property owners professional training to get the jobs at hand done and in safe manners. The CUSP individuals that teach the jobs, also teach personal safety at the top of all, and they continue at each job to make certain that each person is dressed properly for the work and that they follow the safety rules. Before our Pikes Peak region devastating Waldo Canyon Fire, I had no idea any organization such as CUSP existed. I am now glad I know them and continue to volunteer to help them. I hope to assist them in gathering funds to gain much needed tools and/or equipment they need to get the jobs done in the future. Their ability to write grants to assist their neighbors is impressive. Very selfless group of people.
