Final Draft of Hazard Mitigation and Community Wildfire Protection Plan


Gallatin County’s Final Draft of our combined Hazard Mitigation and Community Wildfire Protection Plan is available for comment until June 16, 2019. This document is designed to meet the need of two planning activities, one addressing all hazard mitigation activities of our community risks while the other focuses on wildfire.  For the combined process we evaluated our risks across the county and identify activities that could minimize the impact from those risks.  Visit our Mitigation Plan Update page to learn more or provide comment.

Where is the Smoke From?

Well, thank our neighbors to the North in Alberta, Canada for the smoke here in Gallatin County.  Alberta currently has large scale wildfires burning and their smoke is moving South into our neighborhood.  More on the Alberta fires at:  https://globalnews.ca/news/5338091/alberta-wildfires-may-31/

The US EPA’s AirNow website currently shows Helena, MT as the second worst air quality in the United States right now from the smoke.  While data is shown as not available for Bozeman right now, we can assume that it is also not great here!

Information on air quality and your health is available from the Environmental Protection Agency at https://airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=topics.health
