The forest fire hazard across the East Fire Region is low to high but any moderate to high pockets will be eliminated as the rain continues to move eastward across the region.

Summer evenings are a great time to enjoy family and friends, and share stories around the campfire.

It is also a great opportunity to teach our future generations about fire safety.

If children are present, ensure they are not running or playing near the fire.

Keep your fire small, have a shovel and bucket of water on hand, and never leave the fire unattended.

Leading by example is a great way to teach fire safety.
