Tri-County FireSafe Working Group

The Tri-County FireSafe Working Group has produced a wildfire risk map which illustrates the risk in southern Lewis & Clark County. The risk is determined by the fuels and topography, with dense trees and steep slopes resulting in the highest risk rating. Click here for the wildfire risk map, which is also available at the Disaster & Emergency Services Coordinator's office.
