University of Wyoming Dining Services is delivering breakfast, lunch and dinner to a team of 130 firefighters in the Fox Park area of the Snowy Range.
As the Badger Creek fire slows, Rocky Mountain Team Black is handing over the firefighting reins to an incoming Type III command team. Although the fire is nearing containment, a substantial crew will need to remain on-site until any safety concerns have passed, according to officials.
UW Dining Services, in an effort to support the incoming Type III command team, will take daily meals for about seven days to the firefighters at Fox Park.
“Earlier this week, the firefighting crew contacted UW Dining Services inquiring if we were capable of providing three meals per day for 130 people in Fox Park,” says Eric Webb, UW Residence Life and Dining Services executive director.
He says Dining Services worked through the logistics of providing a 4,000-calorie-per-day diet in a remote location. Meal deliveries began Thursday evening.
“We are excited to offer our support in feeding those who are working hard to protect our forests,” Webb says.
