Wildfire Precautions

Tips for Dry Conditions

  • If you drive and smoke in your vehicle, use the ashtray. Never flick cigarette butts out vehicle windows. In fact, never flick cigarette butts outdoors under any circumstances.
  • To prevent accidental fires from exhaust systems or catalytic converters on cars, trucks, all-terrain vehicles, motor homes, and other spark-emitting equipment, keep vehicles off dry grass. Check spark arresters and be prepared if you must go off paved or cleared roads by having a shovel and fire extinguisher in your vehicle or equipment as a precaution if a fire should start.
  • If you are camping and campfires are allowed, build fires only in approved metal or concrete-lined fire pits in designated campgrounds. And, most importantly, make sure your campfire is completely out and cold to the touch before leaving.

Innovations for a secure nation

The new rocket fuel and motor design adds a higher degree of safety by separating the fuel from the oxidizer, both novel formulations that are, by themselves, not able to detonate.
