Lake Dillon Fire Capt. Kim McDonald, left, and fire inspector Roman Stachniw place the department's fire danger sign on the median in Frisco on Wednesday. Although official fire-danger forecasting has not yet begun for the season, the district already has seen its first wildfire this week. Now is a good time to remind everyone to be very careful with campfires, pile burns, ditch clearing and the use of spark-producing equipment near dry vegetation. It's also a good idea to refresh your evacuation kit, check for adequate property insurance and document all valuables, make copies of vital documents and irreplaceable family photos and store them somewhere else (the internet cloud, in a bank safety-deposit box or with a relative in another community). Finally, make sure everyone in your household knows a designated friend or relative in another community with whom you can check in, in case an evacuation is ordered and you all don't end up in the same place.
