Smokey Bear's 75th Birthday Celebration
The iconic Smokey Bear dressed in a ranger's hat, belted blue jeans and carrying a shovel has been the recognized wildfire prevention symbol since 1944!
Over the years Smokey's message has changed slightly to "Only You Can Prevent Wildfires." A wildfire is any uncontrolled, unplanned and unwanted outdoor fire.
Do your part to help prevent wildfires and learn Smokey's 5 rules:
- Only you can prevent wildfires.
- Always be careful with fire.
- Always watch your campfire.
- Never play with matches or lighters.
- Make sure your campfire is completely out before leaving it.
