Firefighters and first responders on Roaring Lion Fire thank the community

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.
