Please do your part to help prevent wildfires. Always extinguish your campfire and stop frequently to check your OHV to remove debris that builds up on your muffler.
Campfires: please make sure you have the proper extinguishment equipment and water near your fire. Never leave your fire unattended and remember to soak it, stir it, and soak it again; it should be cool to the touch.
Off-highway vehicles: if you are out using your Off-highway vehicle or ATV stop periodically during your ride to knock off burnable debris accumulating under your vehicle; this will help reduce the potential for wildfire ignition by your machine.
