USFS Employees Honored By NPS

8-25 Fire

Two Bridger-Teton National Forest employees have been recognized by the National Park Service for their work in the Interagency Fire & Fuels program. The Intermountain Region of the National Park Service awards several Fire Management Achievement Awards annually.  This year, a category was created to recognize the contributions of non-National Park Service personnel who have had significant and positive impacts on a National Park Service fire program. Andy Norman from the Supervisor’s Office in Jackson was recognized for his help in the development of the interagency program over a long career at the Bridger-Teton during periods of turnover in both park and forest leadership and fire program leadership positions. Jim Ramirez from the North Zone Fire Management organization, based at the Buffalo Ranger Station was recognized for his leadership of a key interagency module within the fire and fuels programs.  Specifically, Ramirez was commended for his ability to stay abreast of policy implementation issues for both the USFS and NPS, which park officials added is no easy task.  Those awards are two of only three such awards made across the National Park Service Intermountain Region.
