Happy 79th birthday Smokey Bear! Your iconic message of preventing wildfires has been a staple in American culture since 1944. Your reminder to "Only YOU Can Prevent Wildfires" has saved countless acres of land and homes from destruction. While some areas may not experience severe wildfires, it is important for everyone to be fire safe. With drought conditions being severe, a small spark can quickly turn into a devastating fire. It's essential to remember to properly extinguish campfires, not leave ci******es unattended, and avoid burning debris as we are under a burn ban. Let's continue to honor Smokey Bear's legacy by being responsible and doing our part to prevent wildfires.
