Forsgren Awards Fire Crew

Forsgren

The Teton Interagency Fire Ecology/Fire Effects Program, jointly administered by Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest was recently honored by Regional Forester Harv Forsgren with the Forest Service’s 2011 Intermountain Region Fire and Fuels Award.  Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek explains that the award comes from Forsgren’s annual recognition of exemplary performances on the parts of Forest employees.  Cernicek says the crew, which has been operating since 1999, was recognized for their outstanding work in the area of resource management.  The forest presented them two plaques, one each for the Forest Service and the Park Service offices. The Teton Interagency Fire Effects crew is responsible for monitoring fire and vegetation effects within the park and forest, collecting information on wildland and prescribed fires, as well as mechanical fuels treatment projects.  In addition to the recent award, the interagency program has been recognized nationally by both the National Park Service and Forest Service for its interagency cooperation.
