Fire Danger Low

graphic showing steps to put out campfire; drown it, stir it, feel it.

Always have water and a shovel if you plan on building a warming or cooking fire. Never leave a smoldering fire unattended thinking it will go out on it's own.

With current wet conditions, Teton Interagency Fire managers have begun fall pile burning. Piles are located throughout the Park and Forest. These piles are generally the result of forest thinning or fuels reduction projects. Smoke will be visible in the vicinity of piles for a short duration. More Information, List of potential locations
Teton Interagency fire managers will conduct prescribed fires this fall, if weather conditions are favorable. For each prescribed fire, managers work with other resource specialists to plan and write a specific prescription that includes parameters for wind speed and direction, smoke dispersal, relative humidity, fuel moisture for live and dead burnable vegetation, and more. These plans also define the types and number of resources needed to safely conduct each burn and support contingency plans. See more information on the prescribed fire page.

The 2014 Teton County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) revision is now available. This plan comprises all of Teton County including local, state, and federal land ownership as well as private lands. The plan highlights current and emerging wildfire hazards and describes treatment alternatives that may mitigate those problems. The CWPP defines wildland urban interface areas within Teton County, and provides a tool for landowners and managers at all levels to utilize in planning and prioritizing efforts to mitigate wildfire hazards. This plan is a result of a collaborative effort by the Teton Area Wildfire Protection Coalition. The Teton County CWPP was originally written in 2005.
