Fires have historically been a natural part of the environment. A group of fire managers began work to study fire on the landscape; mapping the interface between forest areas and homes referred to as the wildland urban interface (WUI), forming the Teton Area Wildfire Protection Coalition (TAWPC), and writing a community wildfire protection plan (CWPP). The CWPP was revised and updated June, 2014, thanks to the hard work from many stakeholders. The TAWPC group determined a uniform message was critical for public education. The NFPA Firewise program and Ready-Set-Go were determined to be effective and easy to access messages.
