As summer temperatures heat up, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks reminds everyone who plans to be outdoors to be aware that fire danger is also on the rise.

FWP urges everyone to be cautious when building and extinguishing camp fires and to be prepared to prevent wild fires. FWP suggests that everyone:

  • Carry a shovel, bucket, and axe in vehicles.
  • Restrict camping activities to designated camping areas and build campfires only in established fire rings.
  • Drive only on established roads. Take care to ensure that catalytic converters and mufflers are in good repair.
  • Do not stop or park vehicles over tall grass or brush.
