“The Cerro Grande Fire and Our Recovery “ is the title of a public talk by Los Alamos County Deputy Fire Chief Doug Tucker set for 7 p.m. Friday.
The talk is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation showing video and lots of news footage taken during and following the fire and will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 1967 18th Street.
The talk is a modified version of the presentation Tucker and LAFD Fire Chief Doug MacDonald have presented around the world.
“We’ve presented this talk at least 50 times to audiences in Ireland, Russia and across the United States,” Tucker said. “It’s always so well received because it’s about a small community and the strength of this community because of the strong leadership we had at the time.”
Joe King was county administrator and along with current county administrator Max Baker, played important roles at the time and especially afterward in bringing the community together, he said.
The 2000 County Council also exercised strong leadership with councilors Lawry Mann, Lewis Muir, Sharon Stover, Chris Chandler, Patt Rogers, Robert Gibson and James Rickman.
