Hello, All!  Welcome to another warm, dry day here in the Greater Houston Area.  Today we have serious business to report.  As you all know, Texas is experiencing the greatest drought of its time.  The drought coupled with high winds have made prime conditions for area wildfires.  All counties in our areas have activated Burn Bans, including Fort Bend County.  Please  take this Burn Ban seriously as you could be putting your life and property as well as the life and property of others in jeopardy.  The following are tips from Smokey the Bear on fire prevention.

   If smoking is permitted outdoors, safe practice requires a 3-foot clearing around the smoker.
•   Don't park your vehicle on dry grass.
•   If off-road vehicle use is allowed, internal combustion equipment requires a spark arrester.
•   Know your county's outdoor burning regulations. Unlawful trash burning is a punishable offense.
•   At the first sign of a wildfire, leave area immediately by established trails or roads. Contact a Ranger as soon as possible. If escape route is blocked, go to the nearest lake or stream.
•   Leave campsite as natural as possible, traveling on trails and other durable surfaces.
•   Inspect your site upon leaving.
•   Never take burning sticks out of a fire.
•   Never take any type of fireworks on public lands.
•   Keep stoves, lanterns and heaters away from combustibles.
•   Store flammable liquid containers in a safe place.
•   Never use stoves, lanterns and heaters inside a tent

As always, if a situation should arise, please call your friendly staff at Stieber Insurance Group, LLC or visit our website at www.stieberinsurance.com

Have a great week!
