Preventing Forest Fires

by Allison

There are different types of firefighters that have special training to help prevent and extinguish fires. Some fight structure fires, while others fight forest fires. Both types of fires are very dangerous. Wildfires can start by natural causes, but many are started by careless humans. The natural causes include lightning and spontaneous combustion. The human causes are cigarettes that are not properly extinguished, campfires and brush fires left unattended. Building small, personal fires can easily start a wildfire when sparks and embers jump to nearby trees and shrubs.
Each year, wildfires average 75,000 in the U.S.! In order for a fire to start and continue burning you must have heat, oxygen, and fuel to complete the fire triangle. Dry brush and wood make perfect tinder for a fire. Therefore, wildfires are most dangerous when the weather is hot, dry, and windy. A wildfire is one of the most dangerous natural forces on Earth! Here a Forest Ranger has a few things to say about wildfires and safety:

How does lightning cause a wildfire?

“Wildfires can be caused when lightning strikes an object in the forest. Usually this occurs when the lightning bolt strikes a tree or an object on the ground during a period of dry lightning or a thunderstorm with little or no rainfall,” states a Forest Ranger. “The electricity discharges into the tree or an object igniting the available fuels. Sometimes the fire can smolder in the duff layer surrounding the tree’s root system for several days until conditions allow it to escape and develop into a larger wildfire.”     

  • Humans are the main cause of wildfires. What are some ways to help prevent  humans from starting wildfires?

“Smokey Bear says that 9 out of 10 wildfires are caused by humans. For 70 years he has been teaching us his ABC’s:

Always Be Careful with Fire.

Smokey also has five safety rules for fire prevention:

  1. Only YOU can prevent wildfires.
  2. Always Be Careful with fire.
  3. Never play with matches or lighters.
  4. Always watch your campfire.
  5. Make sure your campfire is completely out before leaving it.

  • What are some ways to know if your campfire is completely out?

“Smokey Bear recommends a bucket of water to drown your campfire and a shovel to stir the ashes to make sure they are out cold.”

  • What is Smokey Bear’s famous saying?

“Only you can prevent wildfires!”

Where Did You Go This Summer?
By Allison

Autumn is here, but it seems just like yesterday that Summer was here! While it may seem early to be thinking of NEXT Summer, we are looking for students and teachers to share what they did or where they traveled for vacation so that, in June, we can provide some tips for cool vaca spots and activities, in or outside New Hampshire. Please email Mrs. Audet (TAudet@sau53.org), Mrs. Duval (CDuval@sau53.org), or one of the Rams Record staff about what you did last Summer. Photos would be great too! They can be sent digitally or you can drop them off to us.  We meet Friday mornings at 7:30 before school. You also could send a comment to the Rams Record staff via our blog. If you would like, you can write an article for us to post, but please notify us first so we can be on the lookout for your awesome contributions!

My Vacation to Gettysburg
by Sarah

This past Summer, my family and I took a road trip to Gettysburg. As we drove up to the Gettysburg Military Park Visitors Center I was amazed by the number of cars and people there. Walking to the visitors’ center we were met by Abraham Lincoln sitting on a stone bench. We took pictures with him and then went inside. There were lots of people leaving, since closing time was only two hours away. We bought tickets that would be good for the next day and started exploring. There was an array of cases with artifacts found after the Battle of Gettysburg. After  a fifteen-minute wait we were allowed in the theater to watch a short video narrated by Morgan Freeman. After the video, we took an escalator up to the Cyclorama where we watched a painting come alive with the sounds of cannons, birds and horses’ hooves. It was so amazing to see!
After watching the Cyclorama we had about an hour to see the rest of the museum. We walked through until it was announced that the museum would be closing. We went back to our car and drove to see the Soldiers’ National Cemetery. It was a very peaceful place. My family and I found one of the New Hampshire monuments.
The next morning we arrived at the Visitors’ Center for our tour with a guide. We met him and then went out to our car. The guide drove us around to the town of Gettysburg and parts of the battlefield. We saw some more New Hampshire memorials and the guide told us about other state memorials. Only one monument was placed there by the Southern states. All of the other monuments were placed there by Northern states. My favorite part of the guided tour was when we stood on the hill known as Little Round Top. It was a wonderful, clear day and, looking across in the sky, you could see the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. We concluded our tour at the museum and started out on our journey home.

Apple News!

 What's Growing on the "APPLE" tree?

By: Levi

On September 19, 2014 the iPhone 6 was released for people to buy along with the iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch. The iPhone 6 came with some new features like the pedometer app that tracks the amount of climbing that you do. This can come in handy for people who are trying to stay fit. The iPhone 6 also came with some issues. For example, the iphone 6 can bend, even though it’s not supposed to. The iPhone 6, was equipped with some accessories, like the Apple Watch, which was your choice to buy separately. Ios 8, the newest update for the Apple community, was available before the iPhone 6 was released. Some new features were brought to the Apple products like, predictive typing, and up to 6 people can share iTunes music, books, and other store purchases. Another cool feature is, anything you buy is instantly available to all your Apple products There are other cool features you are able to get. The only “bad” apple in the bunch is that now there will be a lot of lonely older iphones that got left in the basket!

        It’s time again
now that it’s June
To play that
sentimental tune.
To don our gowns
and doff our caps
And give each other
high-five slaps.
Its time again
to bid farewell
To lives we know
all too well.
To shake the hands
of teachers who
Helped shape the future
we aspire to.
Its time again
and it did fly
We must never let minutes
pass us by.
Without enjoying
each fleeting one
For they seem to be over
just as they’ve begun.
Its time again
farewell, adieu
We will miss
everyone of you…
 Congrats to our grads, one and all
   To all the rest, See y’all
         next Fall!
