Colorado has had one of the worst fire seasons I can ever remember. The big fires are contained but are still burning. The governor has lifted the state wide fire ban, but most counties haven't. Campfires are a lot of fun but they can also be dangerous if the camper isn't careful.
Recently, Perry from OutdoorEquipment.com emailed me to share a post they did about fire safety while in the outdoors. I think it is a great post with great advice and since fire bans are starting to be lifted with the rains we have been getting, I think it's important to remember all of the tips in this post. Here is the direct link to the post: Safety Tips for Hiking & Camping During Fire Season. I think tip #6 is an important one if it's fire season or not. We always let someone know where we're going, when we're supposed to be back and when we get back when we go camping, fishing, riding or on a quick road trip.
