Ag. Burns Present Concerns

April 10, 2012 Jackson Hole, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Fire-EMS

With the warmer temperatures and the vanishing of snow, the burning season is coming to the region.  Even as the Forest Service is executing some prescribed fires on the northern end of Bridger-Teton National Forest, landowners in the county may also be considering some burns of their own.  Jackson Hole Fire/EMS Fire Marshal Kathy Clay says before conducting such burns, it is important to notify authorities of those intentions.  That way, Clay says, if someone passes by and reports the fire they see, authorities will already know about it and not dispatch firefighters to it.  She also recommends keeping a phone handy in the event the fire gets out of hand and help extinguishing it is needed.  Once the fire is set, Clay says it is important to keep a watchful eye on it – both during and after the burn.  Then, before assuming it is out, feel the area burned to be sure it is cold. Those conducting burns she says should always attend those fires throughout the burn.  At the same time, Clay points out that property owners within the town of Jackson are not permitted to do open burning until the town council declares burn week.

  • 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. It’s a […]
