Be Spring safe

The fire department is asking Juneauites to be cautious of hazards associated with the changing of the seasons.

Capital City Fire and Rescue said in a release that during the early Spring, the dead dry grass poses a hazard of small fires getting out of control very quickly. Those are most commonly caused by backyard burning, kids playing with fire and cigarettes, the release states.

The lake ice around Juneau also can be dangerous this time of year. CCFR advises to keep dogs under control when playing near ice. If an animal falls through the ice, do not go in after them for help.

“If this occurs, call 911 and keep encouraging the animal,” the release states. “Do not go on the ice to attempt to rescue them as you too can quickly become a victim.”
