Teton County and Jackson Hole Fire/EMS have announced that members of the fire department will be conducting structure assessments for wildland fire threat to homes and businesses located within the wildland urban interface in town and around Teton County over the next several months and advising residents of actions they can take to minimize the risks to their homes and property.  Fire Chief Willy Watsabaugh says the project is being funded with grants and other donated funds, and will allow fire personnel to visit every structure located within the forested subdivisions and most unincorporated areas of the county to determine how each structure could be protected in the event of a wildland fire.  Watsabaugh says inspectors will be knocking on doors, asking permission to tour the property to conduct the assessment.  Crews will begin at Red Top Meadows, moving north along Fall Creek Road to the Teton Pass area and on to Fish Creek Road.  Other areas will be assessed as time allows.

If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]

Light to moderate snow shower activity will also be increasing […]
  • Tame that recoil - November 25, 2014
    You don’t have to put up with nasty recoil when you’re hunting. Even if you’re hunting our state’s bigger animals, like elk, moose, or even bison, today’s technology can take a lot of the sting out of your hunting rifle. A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
