Smokey joins SMFPA with message (October, 2010)
Smokey Bear has taken up residence at Schooley's Mountain Fire to remind passers-by to prevent wildfires. The new sign was erected by the New Jersey Forest Fire Service at the request of SMFPA. Since members have been trained in Wildland Firefighting techniques, and due to our frequent interaction with NJFFS, it was fitting for Smokey to have a prominent place in front of the station. Hopefully, those driving by will heed his message and be careful when dealing with outside fires.
