The report details the events and successes of our 2014 Wildfire Awareness Week campaign.


In May of 2014, South Dakota held its inaugural Wildfire Awareness Week to promote wildfire awareness, safety, and prevention. Through a multi-agency planning committee made up of local, state, and federal partners, many wildland fire public education events were held and opportunities to promote wildfire awareness were created. It was such a great success that we are expanding and joining a multi-state proclamation with California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Utah.
