Wildfire risk to residential structures in the Island Park Sustainable Fire Community: Caribou-Targhee National Forest

Author(s): Don Helmbrecht, Julie W. Gilbertson-Day, Joe H. Scott, LaWen Hollingsworth
Year Published: 2016
Description:

The Island Park Sustainable Fire Community (IPSFC) Project is a collaborative working group of citizens, businesses, non-profit organizations, and local, state, and federal government agencies (www.islandparkfirecommunity.com) working to create fire-resilient ecosystems in and around the human communities of West Yellowstone, Montana and Island Park, Idaho. The IPSFC is guided in part by the Federal Land Assistance, Management, and Enhancement Act of 2009, and by the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy, often known simply as the "Cohesive Strategy" (www.forestsandrangelands.com/strategy). Fostering sustainable, fire-adapted human communities is one of three fundamental goals of the Cohesive Strategy.
