Often on a wildfire we see members of the community displaying signs thanking the firefighters. It is less common to see an organized effort that goes in the other direction — firefighters thanking the community.
On the Roaring Lion Fire southwest of Hamilton, Montana five people representing the first responders and firefighters appeared in a video expressing their appreciation for the support they received from the community.
In the video you’ll see:
- Hamilton Fire Chief Brad Mohn
- Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman
- Northern Rockies Incident Management Team Incident Commander Greg Poncin
- Bitterroot National Forest Supervisor Julie King
- USFS District Ranger Eric Winthers
Maybe this will start a trend.
