Join us as we spend a day assessing and reviewing how well communities in Bannock County are doing and what more they could do.

LOCATION: Southeastern Idaho Public Health, Phoenix Room, 1901 Alvin Ricken, Dr., Pocatello
Bannock County has been selected as one of six Idaho communities for a one-day workshop to
- review and assess its level of wildfire preparedness
- identify strategies for improvement
Idaho Department of Lands, University of Idaho and Idaho Smart Growth are conducting these workshops to help all communities improve their wildfire preparedness. The growing threats of wildfire in areas of development are shared by all communities large and small.
While this day will focus on communities in Bannock County, the strategies for creating a resilient community are the same and we invite others to attend to learn and take back to their communities what they learned.
