Smokey Bear to visit Delaware schools in October

Department of Agriculture | Forest Service | Date Posted: Friday, September 30, 2016

Smokey Bear will be back in Delaware schools starting this October, visiting first-graders throughout the First State to remind children that “only you can prevent wildfires.” The second week of October is National Fire Prevention Week, observed annually in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
