In the Spring of 2011 the Big Sky Natural Resource Council decided that the formation of a Big Sky FireSafe Council was a priority for the protection of people, structures, and Big Sky’s vast and precious natural resources. The council is now a recognized member of FireSafe Montana, a statewide organization dedicated to helping landowners and communities become fire safe.
FireSafe Council Goals
- Landowner education
- Provide landowners with resources on how they can receive technical and financial assistance on making their property fire safe
- Create awareness about wildfire prevention and mitigation through a yearly wildfire preparedness event
- Promote landowner responsibility
