Fremont County Wildfire; Hazardous Fuels Mitigation Program

The 2019 Fremont County Community Wildfire Protection Plan is a comprehensive tool to help identify wildfire risk to wildland and urban areas according to Ron Wempen Fremont County Wildfire – Hazardous Fuels Coordinator.

Vegetation changes in Fremont County have been one of the largest updates in the 2019 plan. Wempen gave the example of cheatgrass being invasive in Fremont County and fire fuel.


The Fremont County Wildfire website has a lot of information and resources for communities. Wempen noted that it is free to have their team go to your residence within Fremont County and create a customized Hazardous Fuels Mitigation Plan that fits your specific needs.

If you have questions or would like them to assess your residence you can email Fremont County Wildfire or call their office at (307) 857-3030.
