Keeping with the fire prevention theme this week, I wanted to talk about how to properly put out a campfire. Let me first start by saying that most (if not nearly all RV Parks) have regulations against open flames, however, National and State Parks may not, and building a campfire is almost mandatory. S’mores, campfire stories, roasted marshmallows, the crackling of the embers and the soft orange glow of a campfire…there’s nothing quite like it.
However, if you build a campfire in an area that allows it, you are also responsible for properly extinguishing that fire. It takes more that just pouring water on it. Even applying a liberal amount of water may not be enough to put out all of the embers.
Watch the video below for a quick lesson for campfire management.
If you are planning on constructing a campfire during your camp out, just be really careful and be 100% sure that it is out before you pack up and leave the site. One live ember can spare a fire that can destroys thousands of acres of plant and animal life. Your consignment RV center, PPL Motorhomes wants you to just remember that you are responsible for the footprints you leave in nature.
