If You Fly, We Can’t Flying recreational drones over or near wildfires could cause injury or death to firefighters and hamper the effectiveness of wildfire suppression operations. If recreational drones are detected over or near a wildfire, aerial firefighting aircraft may be grounded, causing wildfires to grow larger and unduly threaten lives, property, and natural and cultural resources. Individuals who interfere with wildfire suppression efforts may be subject to civil penalties and criminal prosecution.

The poster reinforces the message of every agency to reduce human-caused fires – “One less spark. one less wildfire.” Feel free to use the poster to spread the word about fire danger and fire restrictions.
