Take The Pledge

I pledge to:

  • be careful anytime I use fire or items that can cause sparks.
  • never leave my fire unattended.
  • drown, stir, drown again and feel it’s cool with the back of my hand when I put out my fire.
  • NOT use fire or operate equipment when it’s windy, dry or hot.
  • make sure there are at least 15 feet between my fire and flammable things.
  • always have a water source nearby.
  • put out and discard smoking materials properly.
  • NOT dump hot ashes from my BBQ grill or firepit.

Only you can prevent wildfires. Show your commitment to making a difference. Sign the pledge to help stop the spread of wildfires.

Wildfires are any unplanned fires that burn in forests and other wildlands such as shrub or grass communities. They’re a powerful natural force we must fully understand, and respect, in order to best help control. Nearly nine out of ten wildfires nationwide are still caused by humans.

You did it!
