Fire Prevention

Smokey the Bear

Perhaps the greatest impact Nebraskans can have in the area of fire protection is through fire prevention. The Nebraska Forest Service is the state headquarters for Smokey Bear. In addition there is an annual fire prevention material mass purchase through the Nebraska Forest Service. In this program fire prevention materials are purchased in large quantities to take advantage of volume discounts. These materials are then sold (on a cost-recovery basis) to Nebraskans interested in promoting fire prevention.
