Keep safety in mind when enjoying your backyard. Here are some tips to help prevent fires:

  • Store firewood away from any structure.
  • Store fuels and other flammable liquids in a secure location, such as a locked shed or your garage 
  • Remove any dry and dead plant debris from under decks, in the gutters and accumulations against any structure.
  • Dispose garbage, lumber and bulky waste properly.
  • Mow and water your grass around your home.
  • Enclose combustible decks with non-combustible materials.
  • Always keep a watchful eye on fire pits when they are in use and make sure they are safe.
  • Contact your utility company if trees or branches are not clear of power lines on your property.
