Multi Agency Drills Prepare Local Responders For Wildfire Season

center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai and Nikiski Fire Departments participated with State Division of Forestry in a large “table top” drill involving a small wildfire on Friday afternoon that rapidly grows. Alaska experienced one of its earliest and warmest springs on record this year, melting away the snowpack earlier than normal and resulting in a vigorous start to the wildfire season. Burn permits are required for all controlled and debris burning on the Kenai Peninsula from April 1 through August 31. Anyone burning debris or using a burn barrel is responsible for maintaining control of the fire and can be held accountable if the fire escapes.last_img
