Wildfire Awareness

What causes wildfires?

Wildfires occur across the world! They are a dangerous hazard that can create several types of risks.

It is important to maintain a proactive approach to protecting your property, so that during wildfire season one should have less to worry about. 

So, what starts wildfires?  

Human ignition is all too much of a reality.  Be it from unattended campfires to outright arson.  

Lightning strikes are by far the most common natural occurance that can spark a wildfire blaze.  Across the world, volcanoes, and spontaneous combustion contribute to the second and third most frequent natural ignitors of wildfires.

Human Caused Wildfires

Unfortunately, the most prolific source of wildfires is started by humans, and the whopping majority are said to be intentionally caused.  

Cases of neglect occur too frequently, and are something we can surely help prevent.  Proper disposal of smoking products and extinguishing of campfires are both essential!
