Check your winter burn piles

Posted on Tue, Feb 20, 2018


It's time to check your winter burns. Wildfires can smoulder under the snow all winter long and emerge as a wildfire in the spring when conditions are warm and dry. Do your part to prevent wildfires by ensuring your winter burn piles are extinguished.
