Keep Wildfires Wild

Across America, fire season is again upon us. Experts warn of another destructive fire season because of intense droughts, shifting weather conditions and above-average temperatures. Wildfires can burn through almost any outdoor area and be extremely unpredictable in their movements.

While a wildfire can burn almost anywhere on the landscape, the American West is especially vulnerable to wildfires–posing a serious threat to people, wildlife, water sources and air quality.

According to the U.S. Department of Interior, “As many as 90 percent of wildland fires in the United States are caused by people.” If 90% of fires are caused by humans, 90% of fires are preventable by humans and human behavior.
