Hello again, fellow Creekers.
We spoke with Linda at the Christopher Kohl’s Fire Department on Wednesday morning and all fire restrictions have been lifted as of Wednesday, July 25. Every time we get a little bit of rain, some people think we will be off fire restrictions. It is always best to check with the fire department rather than guess. Linda is always very helpful and was able to give us the proper and most up-to-date information.
Even though the fire restrictions have been lifted, we still need to be careful. We don’t have to be reminded about the many fires that have already occurred this year. It is always better to be safe, than sorry.
Here are some safety tips to help. Remember to never leave a fire unattended and to constantly supervise the fire. Make sure the fire is out before going to sleep or leaving the area. Be sure that charcoals are soaked completely after cooking. When smoking outdoors, make sure you have a 3-foot clearing around you. These are just a few of the many things we can all do to help prevent fires.
Christopher Creek is a beautiful area so let’s all do our part to help protect it. If you ever have any questions about fire restrictions or fire safety, the fire department is here to help. The phone number for the Christopher Kohl’s Fire Department is (928) 478-4011.
