    Secretary Jewell Visits Idaho for Fire Season Preview; Flies with BLM Smokejumpers!

    Department of the Interior Secretary Sally Jewell packed a lot into a short stop in Boise on May 12-13, 2013.

    She visited the National Interagency Fire Center to get a western season fire briefing.  She met with the nation’s top fire managers to discuss policy and practices.  She visited the Bureau of Land Management Boise District dispatch center and saw firsthand how initial attack unfolds.  She met with local reporters and, then, held a national news media conference call with 165 participants.  And she spent more than an hour in a standing-room-only meeting with DOI employees on her whirlwind visit.

    And that’s not all.  Despite a brimming schedule, she also took to the air with a group of BLM smokejumpers and watched close-up as they completed training jumps on a warm and almost windless Idaho evening.
