|Build your fire in a designated ring/pit at least 15 feet away (preferably downwind from tent, brush, and other flammable objects).||Use an accelerant such as gasoline, kerosene, or aerosol sprays to start a fire.|
|Keep children at a safe distance with a “circle of safety” at least 3 feet from the fire edge.||Leave a fire unattended – EVER!|
|Keep the fire small and manageable, with water nearby.||Throw anything other than wood into the fire.|
|Talk to children about campfire safety.||Build a fire if conditions are dry or if forest fire danger is High|
|Completely extinguish the fire and coals by pouring water, stirring, and pouring water again until it is cool. Never bury a fire.||Assume the fire pit is safe when arriving at a campsite. Coals from previous campers can still be hot!
