Wildfire Season started March 1st.
Starting March 1st fire permits are required for any type of burning (excluding campfires) in the Forest Protection Area
Never leave your campfire unattended and make sure it is completely extinguished before you leave your site. Remember to soak it, stir it and soak it again. If you can still feel heat coming from the ashes it is not extinguished.
Debris falling from off-highway vehicles can start wildfires. Exhaust systems can heat up to temperatures in excess of 200 degrees - hot enough to fry an egg. Remember to stop frequently and take the time to knock debris from your machine's hotspots. If debris is smouldering, soak it, stir it, and soak it again to ensure it's out.
