WILDFIRES

By Allison
Wildfires are a forest’s worst enemy. This year a number of wildfires have raged through the western United States.  Firefighters did their best to fight them, but it is very hard and tough work, because conditions are hot, dry, and windy.  Fires destroy the homes of animals and people. Some fires are sparked by nature, such as when lightning storms happen. But many are started accidentally by people. Here are some tips on how you can help save forests and animals homes
  • Do NOT build a campfire under low branches or around shrubs.
  • Do NOT build a campfire in dry conditions. Check with the local fire department or wildlife management department to see if fires are permitted.
  • DO make sure you have a pail of water and shovel in case the fire spreads from the fire pit.
  • If a fire does start to spread, call 911 RIGHT AWAY!
Those are some ways to help protect your home and animals.

Remember only you can prevent wildfires...
Thank You!
