The Fire Restriction has been removed from our region, however, our forests are still tinder dry and subject to rapid flame spread. If you do have a camp fire, please make certain it is completely extinguished when you leave it. Smoldering embers can burn for several days and are subject to re-ignition of other materials given proper wind conditions.
We understand there were over 100 smoldering camp fires left by careless campers in the Sitgreaves National Forest over the Memorial Day Weekend.
As Smokey Bear quotes, “ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES ! “
Our annual ARRL Field Day Emergency Operations Center operation was a success. We contacted over 150 radio amateur (ham) stations around the United States. Our radio system has proven once again the value of radio communications around Arizona and nearby states.
You are always welcome to stop by the station on Pinedale Road and say Hi.
If you have any activities to pass along please let us know and we will be most happy to add them to our website. We do like photos too, so don’t be shy about sending them along.
Any comments or questions about our website please feel free to contact our webmaster Jim; w7gnp(at)htawa.club. The comments, presentation, etc., represent the views of the webmaster and may not reflect the overall views of the Fire Chief or the Policies within the department.
