Here are a few tips to help prevent fires:

  • Do Not drive or park vehicles in tall grass
  • Proper disposal of cigarettes. Do Not throw cigarettes out the window
  • Have fire protection equipment on site while working
  • Safety chains for trails need to be properly attached to prevent dragging
  • Recreational fire must be supervised at all times. Once you are done with the recreational fire, douse the embers and ash with water, use a stick or shovel to mix the ash and water to ensure proper extinguishment
