Local Firefighters Deployed Out Of State

engine 3

Wildland firefighters from around the region are being deployed to assist on fires burning around the southwestern United States.  Among them are crews and equipment from the Wyoming State Forestry Division.  However, crews from the various federal agencies in northwestern Wyoming are also being deployed to help in the fire-stricken states as well.  Grand Teton National Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the Engine Three staffed by five interagency firefighters has been deployed to the Big Bear Lake region of California where it has been put on standby for initial attack as the fires are breaking out there.  Two staffed wildland fire engines stationed on the northern end of Bridger Teton National Forest have also been made available for deployment if needed.  Yellowstone Spokesman Al Nash says a national park crew of six has joined with firefighters from Gallatin National Forest to make up a Type Two hand crew which has been sent to New Mexico.  Crews normally work a 14-day assignment and receive rest time of 2-4 days between assignments.

  • Simple steps can help you get your goat - September 22, 2014
    In Wyoming, antelope hunting is often an afterthought. We tend to focus on elk, and deer are a close second. Not many of us do a whole lot of planning for our antelope hunts. Maybe that’s partly because compared to deer and especially elk, antelope hunting can be pretty easy. As long as you’re not […]
