Update on Sweet Grass Co. fires July 29-30 2020
Information release 7-31-2020 1420 hrs.
Sweet Grass County response to Whistle Fire and multiple fires 7-29-2020 to 7-30-2020
Fire crews were able to return to their stations late last night after days of work on the multiple fires in the area. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the dispatchers and the fire crews for an exceptional response. Taking all of those calls while transferring that information to the responders is difficult at best. The fire management teams were right on top of the ever-changing updates. As fire calls came in, they had to reassess each response.
Special thanks to the support services. The Sheriff’s Office, SG County Road Dept., EMS, reserves and the local contractors all responded and provided assistance. Our thanks and deep gratitude go out to our neighbors for their assistance. Park County, Stillwater County, Carbon County, DNRC, BLM, Forest service and the Bitterroot Hotshots were there to help us once again.
