Rangers awarded for wildfire response

Howard Asal and Ashlee Wallace, Colorado Parks and Wildlife rangers at Highline State Park north of Loma, were among the latest recipients of awards honoring acts of valor.

The Park Law Enforcement Association honored nine CPW rangers for their efforts during 2023.

Asal and Wallace were awarded for their quick response to a wildfire about a mile south of the park. They were credited for their fire suppression efforts until firefighters arrived.
