Join Town Hall to Get Prepared for Wildfire Season


As potentially dangerous wildfires extend into rural and developed areas, residents must prepare.

To show people how they can do so, AARP Montana is hosting a free telephone town hall with disaster experts on Tuesday, June 21. The 10 to 11 a.m. session will discuss tips such as clearing vegetation around a home and preparing ready-to-go emergency bags.

“We are likely in store for a bad fire season,” says Tim Summers, state director for AARP Montana. “Once a disaster happens, the time to prepare is gone.”

AARP members will receive a call inviting them to listen and ask questions; nonmembers can dial 855-962-1531 at the time of the event or register here to receive a call. You can also listen live at or later on Facebook or at
