Members of the Bozeman-area fire management community would like to invite the media to discuss the upcoming fire season, seasonal weather forecasts, fire information and fire management policy, and how the agencies and the media can better serve each other as we move into another fire season.
Representatives from the National Weather Service, Gallatin County, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, Park County, the State of Montana, the National Park Service, and the U.S. Forest Service will be on hand to present information and answer questions.
Topics include: social media platforms and other sources of information during incidents, agency jurisdictions and interagency cooperation, fire restrictions, safety equipment media need to visit a fire, how firefighters are preparing for this season, what the public can do to prepare, as well as an opportunity for media to deploy a fire shelter, try on a pack vest, and interview fire managers.
The media day will take place from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm on Friday, June 28 at the U.S. Forest Service Bozeman Ranger District office, 3710 Fallon Street, Suite C.
Please RSVP with me if you would like to participate so we can plan accordingly, and don’t hesitate to call with any questions.
