Utah wildfire prevention starts with #FireSense
Sitting around the campfire with friends and family is one of the most popular camping activities around, and for good reason. It’s hard to beat an evening of roasting tasty treats over the flames while swapping stories with fellow campers. However, it’s important to make sure you’re enjoying your campfire responsibly.
- Only start a fire in an approved fire pit and in a location allowed under local fire restrictions.
- Make sure your fire is completely out before walking away; feel it with the back of your hand to make sure it is cool.
- Never leave your fire unattended.
- Don’t start fires on a windy day, and always have water and extinguisher nearby.
- Learn more about how you can prevent wildfires. #FireSense is common sense.
