No Drone Zone: Be Safe, Stay Clear of Forest Fires!

Flying drones around forest fires is both dangerous and illegal. When you fly a drone near a forest fire, you endanger the lives of pilots, firefighters, and other emergency personnel. Be safe, stay clear of forest fires.

Help Fight Forest Fires: Stay Clear of Waterbombers

When waterbombers approach a body of water, move close to the shore so they can scoop water safely. A waterbomber will not scoop from a lake or river if encroaching watercraft pose a safety hazard. Be safe and stay clear of waterbombers.

Report a Wildland Fire
