Prevent Wildfires from Occurring


• Follow local burning laws. Open burning is the single greatest cause of wildfires across New York State.

• Contact your local fire department for further information on fire laws.

• Report hazardous conditions that could cause a wildfire.

• Check on local restrictions on campfires if you are planning to go camping or spend time in the woods.

• Don’t leave a campfire unattended, and make sure the fire is completely out before leaving it.

• Dispose of smoking materials and matches properly.

• Take extra care in dry grass. Don’t park or idle your vehicle on it, and don’t set hot gas-powered equipment in it.

To report a suspected wildfire, call 9-1-1 immediately. The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services reminds everyone to have a family evacuation plan and a go kit ready for emergencies.
