Fighting fire at the interface between public lands and private propertyhas been an increasing responsibility for the firefighters in Ketchumand Sun Valley. The Castle Rock fire in 2007 and the Beaver Creek firein August 2013 threatened Bald Mountain and the towns of Ketchumand Sun Valley. Our local firefighters also are regularly deployed to fightwildland fires around the western states. This provides valuable trainingand experience that they bring home and share with our local firefighters.
