The Natrona County Committee for Firewise Wyoming was first organized to administer a Wildfire Mitigation Pilot Project on Casper Mountain. The project was funded by a U.S. Forest Service grant obtained by the Wyoming State Forestry Division.

This office now offers the following services to Natrona County wildland-urban interface and mountain landowners:

  1. 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.
  2. Educational workshops.
  3. Training on Defensible Space and Forest Management.
  4. Cost-share programs to help defray the expense of implementing these wildfire mitigation activities.
  5. Work with local fire departments, private landowners, Wyoming State Forestry Division, Natrona County and Bureau of Land Management (BLM), to create shaded fuel breaks that act as “lines” to stop the spread of an uncontrolled wildfire.
  6. Information and literature on Defensible Space, Firewise Construction, Mountain Pine Beetle, and bi-annual newsletters.
