Campfire Safety


  • Keep fires away from overhanging branches and other vegetation.
  • If possible try to use an existing fire pit and circle the fire with rocks to prevent fire from spreading out.
  • Clear an area at least 3 feet around the campfire site down to bare soil making sure to clear all burnable debris.
  • Keep water and a shovel handy.
  • Extra firewood should be stored upwind and well away from the fire.
  • Never leave the fire unattended.
  • When you leave make sure the fire is completely out. See the instructions below for more information.
