How to Safely Enjoy Campfires in 2023

5/1/2023 (Permalink)

Campfires are a great way to enjoy the outdoors and spend time with friends and family - especially during the warm summer months. However, it's important to remember that campfires can be dangerous if not done safely. Here are some tips for campfire safety:

  1. Choose a safe location: Choose a location that is at least 15 feet away from tents, trees, and other flammable objects. Ensure the site is level and clear of any debris.

  2. Keep a bucket of water or sand nearby: In case of an emergency, keep a bucket of water or sand nearby to quickly put out any flames.

  3. Build the fire correctly: Build the fire in a fire pit or ring, using only dry wood or charcoal. Never use gasoline, lighter fluid, or other flammable liquids to start the fire.

  4. Supervise the fire at all times: Always keep a close eye on the fire and never leave it unattended. If you need to leave the area, make sure the fire is completely extinguished before leaving.

  5. Extinguish the fire properly: When you're ready to put out the fire, use water or sand to completely extinguish the flames. Stir the ashes and make sure everything is completely cool to the touch before leaving the area.

  6. Follow local regulations: Be aware of local regulations and any fire bans in the area. Always follow the rules and guidelines to ensure everyone's safety.

By following these tips, you can enjoy a campfire safely and responsibly. Remember, it's everyone's responsibility to prevent wildfires and keep our forests and parks safe.
