Wildfire Risk Assessments

Wildfire Risk Assessments are available in Gallatin County in conjunction with the Montana DNRC.  Visit http://dnrc.mt.gov/divisions/forestry/fire-and-aviation/fire-prevention-and-preparedness/home-fire-risk for more information on this program.  You can request an onsite visit, or use the tool to conduct your own self assessment.

Would You Be Notified?

The ability for emergency officials to provide timely and accurate information directly to those affected by an emerging incident is critical. With the decline of land line telephones and the multitude of digital methods that our communities utilize, this is often challenging for officials. The best way to ensure you receive information direct from emergency officials if you are affected by an emergency, is by registering in Gallatin County’s Community Notification System.

Registration in the system ensures that you will be notified in the method that works best for you for the locations you care about. For individuals who have not registered, officials ability to accurately and quickly notify you is significantly reduced.

Learn more about how the Community Notification System functions at https://www.readygallatin.com/community-notification-system/.
