From boiling hot springs to thousands of wild animals, the hazards in Yellowstone are typically new and different to people. The Security department helps to protect both our guests as well as our team members. They patrol buildings and grounds to observe and identify potential security and safety risks or undesirable conditions such as fires, theft and vandalism.
