Fireworks Ban Critical This Year

Fireworks

This is the time of year Americans like to celebrate their independence with the launching of fireworks –and here in Wyoming, they are readily available in the counties that surround Teton County.  However, on all the federal lands within the county and in Teton County itself, there is a ban on the discharge of fireworks at any time.  Beyond that, Teton County Fire Marshal Kathy Clay notes that this year, it simply makes sense not to shoot off personal fireworks.  Clay says she doubts people are aware of just how dry it is in the Parks, Forest and throughout the county.  Clay says so far, we have not seen the fires other parts of the west have seen, but we are starting to see other complications.  As the fire conditions become increasingly severe, Clay says our local resources are going to be very taxed.  She says it appears we have a very long summer in front of us this year. Clay adds that every day that goes by with warm temperatures and winds and no appreciable rainfall it compounds the building fire danger and extreme fire behavior.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • 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 […]
