ATV Fire Risks
All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV’s) are fun to drive and take the user off-road along trails. As such, the vehicle is often in contact with vegetation. Here are some tips to prevent fire starts:
The heat from the exhaust systems of ATVs can sometimes cause wildfires, especially when idling near tall grass.
ATVs with their spark arrestors removed can release sparks that start wildfires. Ensure your ATV has a spark arrestor inside the muffler to trap any escaping sparks.
Make sure to carry fire suppression equipment, such as a fire extinguisher or a pail and shovel, to extinguish any fires that might occur.
