Wildfire Precautions

Tips for Dry Conditions

  • Never flick cigarette butts outdoors under any circumstances. If you smoke in your vehicle, use the ashtray.
  • Keep vehicles off dry grass to prevent accidental fires caused by exhaust systems or catalytic converters on vehicles other spark-emitting equipment. If you must go off paved or cleared roads keep a shovel and fire extinguisher in your vehicle or equipment as a precaution should a fire start.
