This week's safety tip:
In Colorado, we often dream of a white Christmas season. While we have seen some snow this year, Castle Rock Fire and Rescue reminds us that we are still experiencing very dry weather conditions. In fact, Castle Rock Fire and Rescue has responded to a local brush fire and the wildfire on Green Mountain. With that in mind, CRFD reminds us of a few things to ensure a safe season:
Be cautious when smoking cigarettes or having any other open flames near dry grass and trees.
If you see a wildfire start, call 9-1-1 immediately. Changing wind and weather conditions can turn a small fire into a huge fire in very little time.
Keep in mind the fire restrictions as they are in affect. The most current information can be found at CRgov.com/firebans
Tune in to the news or radio if a wildfire is in your area so you can be better prepared in case an evacuation is necessary.
Each Tuesday, we encourage everyone to take a moment and talk about it. This week, we encourage you to talk about fire safety. We’ll keep the topics and tips coming.
