E911 encourages extreme caution when burning during dry conditions.

In dry weather, even something small such as a cigarette can have large consequences.

• Never walk off and leave a burning cigarette. Always use ash trays.
• Never park your vehicle on dry grass or leaves.
• Avoid driving through tall grass.
• Make sure spark arresters on the internal combustion engines of off-road vehicles are clean.
