Grand Teton National Park says that because of the federal sequestration, it will be hiring fewer seasonal workers this summer and will be making cuts to emergency response teams.
The park was instructed to trim its budget by $700,000 for the next six months. Park Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott says the changes will be noticeable.
“We know there will be delays in responding to search and rescue, as well as medical emergencies and law enforcement,” Scott said.
She says they will also have fewer fire fighters.
