The City of Kingman is recognizing National Wildfire Awareness Month, and Wildfire Community Preparedness Day Saturday, May 7, 2022.

Kingman Fire Chief Jack Yeager said, “It is important for our community to focus on what they can do around their home to help protect against the threat of wildfires. We’ve already seen some Red Flag Warning days earlier this year, which should alert our community to hot, dry, windy weather and the damage a fire can cause in those types of conditions.”

Wildfires are unplanned fires that burn in natural areas like forests, grasslands, or prairies. These dangerous fires spread quickly and can devastate not only wildlife and natural areas, but also communities, as we saw in the Denver, Colorado area earlier this year.

Wildfire Community Preparedness Day encourages people to come together to act to reduce wildfire risks. This year, Preparedness Day is focused on what residents can do, and there is help through an online Prep Day toolkit that provides a list of project ideas, safety tips, and more, to help guide you towards event day.
