“The fire danger now is unlike any we’ve seen in a long time, if ever. We need to be prepared for the possibility of an unprecedented fire season.”

~Washington State Governor Jay Inslee

“Our forests and grasslands are so dry that once a fire starts, it will be more difficult to suppress. We need to take all precautionary steps possible, and residents should do whatever they can to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires.”

~Washington State Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark
