Fire danger in Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest has increased from 'low' to 'moderate'. Western Wyoming has been experiencing hot, dry, and breezy conditions. All these factors contribute to forest fuels drying out and becoming more receptive to ignition sources. Please ensure your campfire is dead out and never leave a fire unattended.
After the Green Knoll Fire of 2001, Teton County Fire EMS produced the following film to help homeowners identify and create home survival and defensible space. Learning to creating defensible space helps to reduce the risk that fire will spread from the surrounding area to the structure and provides firefighters access and a safer area to defend it from.
