As wildfire risk increases, new PSAs urge Americans to recreate safely outdoors [NASF Newsroom]

New PSAs from the crew behind Smokey Bear encourage families and individuals to keep safety in mind while enjoying public lands and their own backyards. With a visit to BeOutdoorSafe.org, folks can find resources for responsible recreation, like the following tips:
