campfireThe Importance of Fire Safety. In the warmer weather it’s only natural to want to hit the trails for some camping and hiking. The outdoors provide a great escape from urban life. An opportunity for exercise, a natural relaxing space to share and reflect with those we care about. We all love a campfire. Remember to completely put it out campfires and only light a fire in the appropriate area.

The startling and disturbing pictures coming from the West Coast wildfires are a strong reminder to take extra caution in the forests and outdoor spaces we all love. We want to send a special word of thanks to all the career and volunteer firefighters who have been working round-the-clock to deal with the raging blaze. Without their efforts, so much more could have been lost and those efforts come at a cost of their own energy, time with family and mental health.

Only light fires when safe to do so. In dry heat, don’t ride motor vehicles in long grass or undergrowth. The Importance of Fire Safety is no joke. Take the extra steps needed to keep everyone as safe as possible. Ironlace is fire resistant.
