Forest Employee Hospitalized, Headquarters Remains Closed

BTNF Office

Ongoing problems with the heating system at the Bridger-Teton National Forest Supervisor’s office in Jackson have led to its continued closure.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says a forest employee working to make repairs Sunday afternoon was hospitalized after being overcome by fumes.  However, fire officials who responded were unable to determine if there was a significantly high carbon monoxide level in the building.  Firefighters aired out the building and contained a leak in the system, but the heating system remains non-functional at this time.  Cernicek says there is no estimate regarding when the building can be inhabited again, and employees with offices there have been ordered not to come to work until the system is repaired and safe.  Meanwhile, members of the public who need forest information or permits may continue to access those services at the Interagency Information Building  several blocks to the north of the forest headquarters building.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
