BLM Wyoming Fire Fighting Resources Ready To Respond

Bureau of Land Management

While some of the Bureau of Land Management’s wild fire fighting equipment is engaged around the state, additional resources are positioned and ready to move should activity increase.

That’s according to BLM Resource Council Coordinator, Cindy Wertz. Wertz says since the start of the season they’ve responded to many fires outside their jurisdiction in an effort to stay on top of the fire season, plus they’ve pulled in resources from other states and requested additional severity funding to cover costs. “Since that time, the Casper dispatch has had six engines on the ground. Normally we have four, and in fact, for awhile, we actually had four additional engines from Oregon, because they’re not in a high fire danger right now.”

Wertz says the additional resources are stationed near Casper, but are available for response to all three BLM Dispatch centers in Wyoming.

Since the beginning of this early fire season BLM has responded to fires at Guernsey State Park, Skull Creek, Hells Gap, Coal Creek, Whitlock, and currently the Cato Fire near Buffalo.
