DNR division to change name July 1

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Another executive order issued by the Governor takes effect July 1 since lawmakers did not object.

    The name of the Alaska Division of Forestry will change to the Alaska Division of Forestry and Fire Protection at the beginning of the fiscal year.

    Division Director Helge Eng said in a release that the new title more clearly reflects the public safety and fire suppression responsibilities of the agency, as well as its forestry duties.
