View Smokey the Bear Video
One of the most widely recognized and longest standing symbols of wildfire prevention, Smokey Bear, has been promoting the message “Only You Can Prevent Wildfire” since 1944. As New Jersey becomes increasingly more developed the incidence of wildfire increases. Approximately ninety-nine percent of all New Jersey wildfires are human caused, either accidentally or intentionally. As a result, Smokey’s message still remains a critical element of the Forest Fire Service’s wildfire prevention message today. To learn more about Smokey Bear and for tips and tools about wildfire prevention, visit Smokey Bear's web site.
