Plan for a Fire-Free Spring in Dane County, WI
Keep Madison, Wisconsin Fire-Free this Spring!
The Spring season brings warmer temperatures, beautiful colors, and an abundance of outdoor activities. Plan this season to help ensure it is safe and fire-free.
By following these steps, you can help prevent wildfires and ensure a fire-free spring.
- Clear debris and flammable materials around your home: Remove dry leaves, twigs, and other debris from around your home and yard. Trim trees and shrubs that are near your home to reduce the risk of fire.
- Check your smoke detectors: Ensure that your smoke detectors are in working condition and have fresh batteries. This is a crucial step to alert you in case of fire.
- Don't burn debris: Burning yard waste is a common cause of wildfires. Avoid burning yard waste, especially on windy days, and instead dispose of it safely.
- Be careful with outdoor fires: If you plan on having an outdoor fire, use a fire pit or designated area. Keep a water source nearby to put out the fire and don't leave it unattended.
- Follow local fire safety regulations: Check with your local fire department for any restrictions or regulations on burning or outdoor fires.
- Be cautious with cigarette butts: Don't toss cigarette butts out of your car window or on the ground. Ensure that they are fully extinguished before discarding them in a proper ashtray.
- Prepare a fire safety plan: Create a fire safety plan for your home and discuss it with your family. This should include an escape route, meeting spot, and contact information for emergency services.
