Fire Fest at Johathan Dickinson State Park

Division of Forestry and Johathan Dickinson State Park in Hobe Sound, Fl had a Fire Fest with a controlled burn. The focus is on fire safety and the importance of forest management.

The growth of community development close to wildlands and the growth of vegetation has made the management in these areas riskier and complex.

Tribal, federal, state, and local governments partner in the management of these areas and community preparedness strategies.

Inviting the public to talks given by the firefighters and a demonstration of an actual controlled burn is an effort to educate families to get involved in the use of the community wildlands and its wildlife.

Safty is of key importance as large numbers of families joined the fest for a day of activities.

Look for information on their website for the next Fire Fest.
