Wildfire Awareness During Memorial Weekend

Posted: May 23, 2013 at 5:02 pm

Warm weather is predicted for Memorial Day Weekend, May 25th-27th, but the holiday weekend typically leads to a multitude of new wildfires that are often started by accident by abandoned campfires, fireworks, all-terrain/off road vehicles, yard burning and other various reasons.

 

Do your part in using safe fire practices by making sure your campfires are completely extinguished, fireworks are used with caution and only where they are legal and obeying by burn permit regulations and also calling 911 to report new fires.

 

For burn permit information call your local Division of Forestry or visit their website.
