Answer: 1940’s. Smoky the Bear was created by the US Forest Service in August of 1944. The first image of Smoky was of him holding a bucket and pouring water over a campfire.
20. How do you put out a campfire properly?
Answer: The US Forest Service’s website states: "1. First, drown the campfire with water! 2. Next, mix the ashes and embers with soil. 3. Scrape all partially-burned sticks and logs to make sure all the hot embers are off them. 4. Stir the embers after they are covered with water and make sure that everything is wet. 5. Feel the coals, embers, and any partially-burned wood with your hands. 6. Everything (including the rock fire ring) should be cool to the touch. 7. Feel under the rocks to make sure no embers are underneath. 8. When you think you are done, take an extra minute and add more water. 9. Finally, check the entire campsite for possible sparks or embers, because it only takes one to start a forest fire. 10. Remember…if it is too hot to touch, it is too hot to leave. Please take the time to completely put out your campfire, it could prevent a wildfire."
