Firewise Wyoming

Firewise Wyoming provides a wide range of wildfire management and prevention services to landowners. Services include:

  • Consultation with landowners on developing defensible space areas around their homes and cabins, and on developing Forest Management and Fuel Reduction Management plans for their land.
  • Educational workshops.
  • Training on Defensible Space and Forest Management.
  • Cost-share programs to help defray the expense of implementing these wildfire mitigation activities.
  • Work with local fire departments, private landowners, Wyoming State Forestry Division, and Bureau of Land Management (BLM), to create shaded fuel breaks that act as “lines” to stop the spread of an uncontrolled wildfire.
  • Information and literature on Defensible Space, Firewise Construction, Mountain Pine Beetle, and bi-annual newsletters.
