About Wildfire Safety
Given the dry climate of Wyoming, wildfires are bound to occur in the state on a yearly basis. Most experts consider this natural disaster inevitable, often citing numbers from The National Interagency Fire Center’s (NIFC) yearly wildfire reports. The most recent information from NIFC indicates that 512 wildfires–affecting 35,652 acres–occurred in Wyoming alone in 2015.
Of course, any wildfire has the potential to threaten the wellbeing of Wyoming’s agricultural landscape, as well as the safety of the stewards living and working on that land. Respecting this fact, experts have created the multitude of resources compiled here, each of which aim to enhance safety for people, livestock, and other assets at all wildfire stages.
