Firewise workshops aim to help homeowners Big Horn County Fire- wise is hosting two work- shops this summer aimed at providing information on what homeowners can do to make their property safer in case of fire. The first meeting will be held at the Lowell Fire Hall at 6:30 p.m. on June 3, and the second meeting will be held at the Big Horn Ski Resort Lodge (Meadow- lark) at 1 p.m. on Aug. 6. Both meetings will involve approximately one to two hours in a classroom fol- lowed by a one- to two-hour field tour during which homes or cabins will be vis- ited to review onsite condi- tions. Topics addressed will include hazardous fuels conditions, the home igni- tion zone, wildfire behavior, structure ignitability in- cluding home building ma- terials, ingress and egress issues and homeowner re- sources available for re- ducing hazardous condi- tions, according to County Firewise Coordinator Chris Weydeveld. Big Horn County re- ceived a two-year $50,000 grant in September of 2008 from the Wyoming State Forestry Division to assist in addressing a growing concern about the dangers of wildfires. The Big Horn County Firewise Grant will help plan for reducing the risk of catastrophic fire in the wildland-urban inter- face (WUI) and for the edu- cation of the public on prac- tices that can be done to reduce the risk of loss of life and property to fire. The WUI is defined as that area where wildland vegetation co-mingles with homes and other values-at-risk. For more information contact Chris Weydeveld at cweydeveld@wytfs.com or. (307) 333-1098.
