In Montana, wildfire seasons mark the calendar and remind us of the summers and events of years gone by. As Montana faces an active wildfire season, it's important that we sound the horn at the federal level to make sure our hardworking firefighters have all the resources they need to battle and contain the large fires scorching our state.
While the fires have displaced hundreds of Montanans, every day folks have risen to the challenges to help a neighbor or a stranger in need. It's the Montana way. And, it's my job to go to bat for any Montana county, tribe or individual navigating the federal disaster emergency process. Please see more information and contacts for this wildfire season below and don't hesitate to call my office or email any time and we'll work to get through this difficult time together.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families impacted by this wildfire season, I'm committed to working together with anyone who'll join me to support those fighting fires and all families in need.
All the best,
