Sparks

volunteer firefighters in ColoradoWe are so thankful for the rain today. However, with a bad fire season and drought predicted for the summer, we need to be vigilant when protecting ourselves from fire. These are some things to avoid:

  • Anything which produces an open flame or has the potential to create an uncontrolled fire.
  • Building, maintaining, attending, or using any fire to burn trash, debris, fence rows or vegetation, or any campfire or warming fire.

We all know an open fire can suddenly and unexpectedly get out of control. However, sparks are something we may not always be on guard for, although we know their deadly potential. Periodically check your vehicle to make sure nothing is dragging along the road, throwing those dangerous sparks. If you hook up a trailer, make sure your chains are secure. If we each do our part, we can all be safer this fire season. Check the Jefferson County Sheriff website here to see the published fire ban.
