We are currently in a drought with the lack of rain recently. With drought and extremely dry conditions there is a higher risk of brush fires starting and spreading.

To prevent brush fires:
* Avoid ANY open burning!
* Properly put out and dispose of cigarettes! (Don’t throw out car window)
* Avoid parking on dry grass!
* Only use barbecues in a suitable and safe area. Never leave them unattended!
* Be mindful when operating equipment outdoors that can create heat or sparks!

Incase of emergency dial 911!
