Jul 2, 2018


With Fourth of July two days away, we check in with the Maine State Fire Marshal and a Forest Ranger Specialist to learn how to stay fire-safe this summer. We’ll discuss how high the fire danger is this summer, and how to handle fireworks safely. We’ll also get an update on the best smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and other home safety devices and measures.
