City Hall on Tuesday is scheduled to host an online event addressing the wildfire danger in the Park City area this year.

There is early concern about the possibility of fires in the summer after the low snow totals during the winter. There have long been worries that a wildfire in the Park City area could be destructive as well as devastating to the economy.

The event on Tuesday is part of the municipal government’s ongoing Virtual Coffee with Council program. A posting announcing the event notes that “statewide drought conditions and warming temperatures are ushering in an early start to the wildfire season.”

City Hall and Park City Fire District officials are scheduled to speak during the event, including Paul Hewitt, who is the chief of the Fire District.

The event is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. and will be available at: or on Zoom at
