That's Right!!!
 

Here is a picture of firefighters. Can you tell what they're wearing?

It's very important for firefighters to wear leather boots and leather gloves and to bring safety goggles because they can help protect them from the harmful fire.

Now you must help the firefighters make some decisions about how to conduct a safe burn. Smallville can be windy sometimes. This makes the firefighters a bit nervous because they don't know what to expect.

When do you think the best wind conditions would be for the firefighters to conduct the burn?

The best time to conduct a prescribed burn is when the wind is between two or three miles per hour because that makes it easy for the fire to be controlled.

The best time to conduct a prescribed burn is when the wind is between five and 18 miles per hour.

The best time to conduct a prescribed burn is when there is no wind at all.
