|Don’t let your summer go up in smoke.|
|Check your chains on your trailer before you go. One spark from a dragging chain can start multiple roadside fires.|
|Before you leave, drown your fire with water, stir the coals, add more water, and stir. Feel the coals to be sure your fire is cold.|
|Pack in, Pack out. Make sure you take your trash out with you or use provided trash receptacles.|
|Avoid target shooting when it is hot, dry and windy.|
