Montana Evaluates Fire Danger

May 23, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, Paradise Valley No Comments
Schweitzer

The annual fire season briefing for Montana was delivered to Governor Brian Schweitzer yesterday including presentations from the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, the Northern Rockies Coordination Center and a variety of other state and federal agencies.  Schweitzer says the state has already seen fire on more than 30-thousand acres and the hot, dry weather in Montana this month has also elevated the fire risk in some areas unusually high.  Schweitzer says early season predictions about the fire season in Montana and throughout the Northern Rockies geographic area don’t point to an extreme season, but even in an “average” season, fire crews for the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation will respond to 350 wildfires.  Schweitzer says the state this year will add the social media site “Twitter” to the methods it uses to get their fire information out to the public in a timely manner.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
