The Caribou-Targhee National Forest, Teton County Fire & Rescue and Idaho Department of Lands would like to invite you to our Living with Fire Workshop on Saturday, July 15th from 2:00 - 5:00 PM. Fire Managers from these and other partners in Teton Valley would like to engage with the community on topics ranging from last summer's Tie Wildfire, emerging incident planning, fire ecology of the local landscape, and how to make your home defensible from a wildland fire.
Please meet at the Pine Creek Summit parking lot at 2 PM. Fire managers will take the group to several locations to include the Tie Wildfire and a fuels reduction treatment on FS lands.
The day will close with food/refreshments provided by Teton County Fire & Rescue and an informational session on defensible space, how to get a home ignition zone evaluation and grant funding opportunities to complete hazardous fuels reduction around your property available through Teton County and Idaho Department of Lands.
Demonstrated by our 2016 fire season, living with fire is a part of our way of life and we want you and your neighbors to be prepared. We look forward to seeing you on July 15th and encourage you to forward this invitation to others that might be interested. If you have additional questions about the event please call the Teton Basin Ranger District Office at 354-2312.
