(SD)-Daugaard Declares Wildfire Awareness Month
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Governor Dennis Daugaard has proclaimed May as Wildfire Awareness Month in South Dakota and joined ten other western states in a separate multi-state proclamation.
This year's theme, One Less Spark, One Less Wildfire, encourages the public to take simple steps to reduce the impacts of wildland fire because everyone, especially those living in fire-prone areas, has an important role in preventing loss of life and property from wildfire events.
Information on ways to prevent and prepare for wildfires can be found by visiting the Great Plains Fire Safe Council website at gpfiresafecouncil.com.
