Prevention

According to NFPA, 96% of all brush fires are started with a man made source and 74% are easily prevented.

  • Be sure that smoking materials are disposed of properly in fire-resistant containers.
  • Provide metal containers for cigarette disposal to prevent them from being tossed on the ground.
  • If you have a campfire or bonfire, be sure it is completely out.
  • Avoid outside fires on dry or windy days.
  • When using equipment or mowing lawns, minimize sparks and avoid such activities when the fire risk is high.
  • Leave fireworks to the professionals.
  • Keep matches and lighters away from children.
  • Avoid steel bullets outside as they can spark when they hit rocks or other hard objects.
  • Reduce the risk from sparks by being sure nothing is dragging from your vehicle.

Pennsylvania’s Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens in the “golden hour” of emergency care following a traffic accident when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a yellow dot in your vehicle’s rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.
The program is a cooperative effort among the Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation, Health and Aging; the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and First Responders and local law enforcement.
