, 77 million Americans went camping at least once in 2018. As warmer weather approaches, we hear the call to immerse ourselves in nature. However, wildfires are still very possible as we progress into the spring season. We have compiled a short list of safety essentials to remember when you revisit your favorite camping spots.
1. Only camp in designated campgrounds.
2. Create a fire ring for your campfire and never leave it unattended.
3. Only burn wood in your campfire. Burning paper or cardboard creates ash that can be redistributed by wind.
4. Always divide your camping wastes into recyclable and not recyclable trash to take it to your nearest recycling station.
