Fireworks Safety: Fireworks are a highlight of summer, but it’s crucial to practice fire safety. If hot residue from your fireworks starts a wildland fire, you could be held responsible for the cost of extinguishing it. Consider attending organized fireworks events instead of setting off your own.

Help Fight Forest Fires: When waterbombers approach a body of water, move close to the shore to allow them to scoop 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:

  • North of the French and Mattawa Rivers: Dial 310-FIRE.
  • South of the French or Mattawa Rivers: Dial 9-1-1.
