Fire Interests Host Public Meeting

skfire

The Teton Area Wildfire Protection Coalition is updating the Community Wildfire Protection Plan and is seeking public input in that update by hosting an Open House tonight beginning 6:00 pm at the Jackson Hole Middle School. Jackson Hole Fire Chief Willy Watsabaugh says participants will discuss defensible space, building defensible structures, and strategies for fuel reduction.  Watsabaugh says the objective of the overall plan is to update the community wildfire protection plan as well as to meet with the public, let them know what the community has developed, exchange information, and seek some input from the community concerning how the plan should proceed.  However, as much as anything else, Watsabaugh says the meeting will provide an opportunity to give the community information and resources to look at the wildland interfaces around their own homes and what they can do to protect their property. Watsabaugh says by having a community wildfire protection plan, the community becomes eligible for national funding for projects identified in the plan.  Participants may also pick up free literature and guides to help them prepare for the season ahead.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]

  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
