Wood River Valley Residents Prepare For Future Fires
Sun Valley, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Residents in the Wood River Valley have been reeling in the aftermath of the Beaver Creek Fire.
Now that it's over, this afternoon they met to talk about how the fire affected their local economy, and what they could do to prepare themselves to deal with large fires like this one in the future.
Jack Sibbach, Director of Marketing for the Sun Valley Resort, says, "Fire does become a part of that equation, it's a natural occurrence. For us, we have to prepare Bald Mountain, and it's part of our preparation all the time."
Tomorrow we'll take an in-depth look at the community's effort to prepare for fire season. That could involve rescheduling some local events earlier in the summer.
