The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal announced Wednesday that a Pacific Northwest 

legend, best known as Bigfoot, is joining fire prevention activities statewide, particularly in the wildland urban interface and communities at greatest risk of wildfires and property loss. 


Starting in June, the OSFM will be promoting wildfire safety education with its partners, 

using images of Bigfoot and the hashtag #BelieveInFireSafety. "Wildfires can easily be ignited 

by backyard burning, an unattended campfire, a hot car on tall, dry grass, or from dragging

tow chains -- and they spread fast," said State Fire Marshal Jim Walker. "We hope our Bigfoot campaign will draw attention and create a bigger ‘footprint' of wildfire prevention efforts around 

the state," Walker added. 

"We want people to believe in fire safety, whether you are camping, visiting Oregon or recreating."
