Happy Birthday Smokey Bear!
Smokey Bear turns 70 years old August 9, 2014. Since 1944, Smokey Bear has been the symbol of protection of America's forests from human-caused fire. Smokey Bear is recognized by 96% of adults, and 7 out of 10 adults are able to recall Smokey’s message of "Only You Can Prevent Wildfires" without prompting. His message of wildfire prevention is the center of one of the most successful PSA campaigns in our nation's history. The term wildfire applies to any uncontrolled outdoor fire.
The principle causes of human-related wildfires are campfires left unattended, debris burning on windy days, careless discarding of smoking materials and BBQ coals, and operating equipment without spark arrestors.
