Fire Restrictions Lifted 

Public Service Announcement

News Release - (September 22, 2016)


Due to moderating fire weather conditions, Albany County will lift the partial fire restrictions currently in effect throughout the county on September 23, 2016. The forecast precipitation and lower temperatures will reduce the potential for dangerous fires to arise from ordinarily safe practices.

While the danger of accidental wildfire is diminished, it will remain important to handle fire cautiously. The risk of a fire escaping through carelessness will remain and there will be occasional days on which this risk will be high. Please avoid unnecessary fires on hot, dry, and windy days, especially while red flag warnings are posted by the National Weather Service. As always, make sure campfires are cold before leaving them, using a shovel and water as required.

For additional information please contact the Albany County Fire Warden at 307-760-3641.

Undersheriff Rob Debree 

Undersheriff Robert J DebreeRob DeBree, 58, passed away on September 2, 2016. At the time of his passing, he was enjoying two of his most cherished activities: spending time with his son, and hunting.

Rob was born July 19, 1958 to Shirley and James DeBree, in Port Huron, Michigan.  Following a move which would later take the family to Montana, he attended several schools and graduated as an accomplished athlete from Bozeman High School in 1976. Rob excelled in both baseball and football.  Rob would attend Montana State University, where after a year as a student-athlete playing football, he enlisted in the United States Air Force.

Upon completion of his military service, DeBree would marry Alyn Hayes in 1980, though they would later divorce in 1986. Rob welcomed the adoption of his daughter Danae Horst, in 1980, and celebrated the birth of his son, Josh, two years later.

Rob began a highly successful career in law enforcement and ultimately became a highly decorated and respected 34-year career.  Rob joined the Douglas County (Colorado) Sheriff’s Office in 1980.  DeBree’s dedication and work ethic would promote his noteworthy rise to the rank of Corporal within the same year. Following three years of service, Rob moved to Laramie, Wyoming to fulfill goals of being closer to family, as well as the opportunity to serve with the Albany County Sheriff’s where Rob was employed until the time of his death.

Reflected in numerous professions and professional awards, undoubtedly DeBree’s greatest source of pride would come in 1987 upon meeting his best friend and future wife, Susan (Dalles) DeBree. Married in July of the following year, the couple will continue to be remembered for their strong sense of family and generous support of Albany County youth, especially within the community of 4-H.

While Rob’s sense of dedication and determination will be remembered by all who knew him, his unshakeable commitment to service and law enforcement will forever define his greatest achievements and personal aspirations.  Reflected in numerous hard-earned promotions, including Deputy, Detective Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Detective Lieutenant, DeBree’s highest rank would come in his most recent post as Albany County Undersheriff, a position he thoroughly enjoyed while serving with Sheriff Dave O’Malley
