Check out the video the National Fire Prevention Education Teams did with some of our tribal members! Fire prevention is truly important in our daily lives. Thank you, Mr. Enjady, Rylee Chino and the NFPET!
Listen to artist Oliver Enjady from the Mescalero Apache Tribe. Oliver delivers a fire prevention message in his native Apache language and in English to the children and adults of the the Tribe. His message comes at a time when the Southwest is in the midst of high fire danger with numerous large wildfires on the landscape in Arizona and New Mexico. Did you know that 9 out of 10 wildfires in the U.S. are human caused? In the Southwest, (Arizona and New Mexico) about half of the wildfires are human caused, and we need your help to prevent wildfires! With all the recent fires in the region, our National Fire Prevention Education Team (NFPET) has been working with various state, federal and local agencies to help boost wildfire prevention messaging. We are facilitating wildfire awareness to the local communities by attending events, going to visitor centers and dropping by businesses throughout the Southwest.
