Terrorism

Terrorism is a violent act or an act dangerous to human life, in violation of the criminal laws of the United States or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives (US Department of Justice).

Eagle County has experienced an act of domestic terrorism with the arson fires on Vail Mountain in 1998. These fires were allegedly started by a person or persons to protest the proposed ski area expansion. While Eagle County is not a prime target for terrorist activity, our local emergency agencies are working with state and federal agencies to prepare for possible acts of terrorism.
