Fire Season

More fires are burning in Yosemite and parts of California. Seems to be the time of year again. Plus with fall coming up, and more dry weather, camping etc, be sure and follow fire safety.

1. Be sure all campfires are extinguished and buried. Stir it around with dirt and water to make sure it is out.

2. On windy days, be mindful of your surroundings and your fire.

3. Put the cigarette out. Put it in a disposable cup or something similar so the ashes don't get free.

4. If you find yourself in path of a fire, follow instructions precisely, it could save your life.

Just be mindful and careful around flames this year, too many fires claim too many lives.
