Summertime is the traditional time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Here in Cedar City we are situation next to some of the most beautiful mountains imaginable. Of course that is just our humble opinion. I just want to add my voice to the throngs of other voices in wishing everyone that chooses to enjoy the outdoors to do so responsibly!
That means watching your fire use. We have all seen the devastation in California and other places due to fires that have burned out of control. Currently we are so dry that the Forest Service has relegated fires into approved fire pits only. Even if you are using an approved fire pit make sure that you are safe. Keep a bucket of water or dirt nearby to throw on any fire that might start to get away. Make sure that your fire is cold to the touch before leaving it unattended. No one wants anyone else to suffer through a wildfire that could have been prevented. Be safe, but just as importantly, be responsible! Have a great weekend!
