Wildfires, by their nature, can be unpredictable and pose potential risks. While we cannot predict or control the course of these events, we strongly advise you to take certain precautions to safeguard yourself, and your travel companions. Here are some essential guidelines to consider:

1. Stay Informed: Prior to your departure and during your trip, stay updated on the latest information and alerts related to wildfires in the areas you plan to visit. Local news channels, official websites, and smartphone applications can provide valuable updates and insights. See link section below.

2. Follow Authorities' Instructions: Comply with any instructions or recommendations provided by local authorities or emergency management agencies. They have the expertise and knowledge to guide you safely through any potential risks.

3. Plan Your Route Wisely: Avoid areas that are currently affected by wildfires or prone to fire hazards. Research alternative routes or consult with local authorities or campground operators to determine the safest path for your journey.

4. Prepare an Emergency Kit: As a precautionary measure, pack an emergency kit with essentials such as first aid supplies, non-perishable food items, water, flashlights, batteries, a battery-powered radio, a charged cell phone/satellite phone and extra clothing. This kit will provide you with peace of mind and resources during unforeseen circumstances.

5. Practice Fire Safety: Exercise caution and adhere to fire safety protocols while enjoying campfires or cooking outdoors. Observe any restrictions or bans on open fires and ensure that you fully extinguish any flames before leaving your campsite.

6. Be Vigilant: Pay attention to your surroundings and report any signs of fire, smoke, or suspicious activities to the appropriate authorities. Prompt action can help prevent potential disasters and protect both natural resources and human lives.
