Prevent Equipment-Caused Wildfires

Haying and crop harvesting are underway across Montana. Your local firefighters are asking you to be cautious while operating equipment this summer.

To avoid starting a wildfire:

  • Inspect and maintain equipment. Ensure equipment has a sound, functional exhaust system or spark arrester
  • Avoid parking or driving in tall grass; if you have to park in dry grass patrol the area to make sure a fire hasn’t started
  • Make certain you have the necessary tools and water to suppress a fire: including a fire extinguisher, shovel, and water tank with pump and hose. Also, have a tractor with tillage equipment attached for emergency line construction

You remain fully responsible and liable for any fire set and for all consequences of both a civil and criminal nature.
