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.
