Just in case you forgot, here are 5 quick tips for practicing campfire safety! When camping and using a campfire freely or in a fire pit it’s important to follow the right safety procedures for you and everyone around you, as well as wildlife.
–Take the wind into consideration. A heavy breeze may blow fire into nearby objects that are flammable.
–Make sure to have water close by. If your fire gets out of hand, having water nearby can be really helpful.
–Never leave your campfire unattended. A fire that isn’t monitored can potentially be dangerous.
–Watch children around your campfire. Kids can be curious, and sometimes they require extra watching around the fire.
– Always put your campfire completely out. Make sure all cinders are extinguished and campfire is no longer smoking.
