Wildfire Risk Reduction Program
Wildfire is a fact of life in the Western United States. It is often more a question of when, not if, a forest fire will strike. TCD is dedicated to raising awareness about living with forest fire through community outreach and education.
TCD works in collaboration with local agencies and organizations to raise awareness about wildfire risk reduction through membership in the Teton Area Wildfire Protection Coalition (TAWPC). TAWPC works to advance the Community Wildfire Protection Plan, engage in community outreach and education, and review proposed wildfire risk reduction projects.
Internal wildfire risk reduction programming at TCD includes administration of also wildfire risk overviews and grants to landowners within Teton County, WY, to encourage engagement in wildfire risk reduction projects.
