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.
