Seasonal Alert: Increased Risk of Wildfires

April 18, 2023

Increased Risk of Wildfires


Several recent wildfires throughout our region have renewed the need to remind outdoor recreationists of increased risk of fire this time of year. Warming temperatures and dry leaves create the perfect conditions for wildfires to begin and spread quickly.

Before you head out on the trail, be sure to check with authorities like New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for updates on wildfires in your area and tips for preventing and reducing the risk of fires.
