Year End Greating

Smokey is going to take some time off for the holidays and in preparation for a"long winters nap"! Hope you and all your family has a great New Year.

Please as you enjoy and share time with family/friends always keep in mind what you can do to stay safe from wild and structural fires. And as you prepare for the new year and those resolutions how about making a resolution we all can live with... Repeate after Smokey ... "For 2011 I make a promise to ALWAYS BE CAREFUL WITH FIRE "

I am going to leave you with this bit of news from the web today as a reminder that winter can be a dangerous time for wildfires in some areas of the country, like our friends in Texas.

Wildfire risk high for much of winter

Local officials urge residents to stay aware

National Weather Service meteorologists and Texas Forest Service officials recently gathered in College Station to discuss drought conditions across Texas and what it means for the possibility of winter fire outbreaks. The meeting concluded with the two groups predicting a severe wildfire season for at least the next three months.
