Thursday, August 28 the Alpine Fire Department will host a Firewise meeting. The meeting will take place from 1-4 p.m. in the Alpine Fire Department Building.
“A wildfire may make it necessary for neighborhood residents to evacuate,” said Alpine Fire Chief Mike Vogt. “Planning together with the local fire department and law enforcement authorities can save lives.”
Meeting attendees will include representatives from Bridger-Teton National Forest, Caribou Targhee National Forest, Wyoming State Forestry, Lincoln County Emergency Management, and the fire department.
“We are developing a group to better protect the Town of Alpine and outlying areas from a wildfire,” Vogt said. “We welcome any input from private landowners in this process.”
