OHV SAFETY

You can reduce the risk of your off-highway vehicle causing a wildfire by following these simple steps:

  • Before you ride, clean out hot spots and remove debris from your machine.

  • After riding through muskeg or tall grass, stop and remove any build-up from your machine.

  • Carry firefighting equipment such as a small shovel, collapsible pail or fire extinguisher.

  • Wash your quad, trike or bike and keep it clean; do not wash in streams and creeks.

  • Make sure your muffler and spark arrestor are working properly.

  • Stop frequently. Take the time to knock debris from your machine’s hot spots. If the debris is smouldering, soak it, stir it, and soak it again to make sure it’s out.
