KINGMAN – The City of Kingman is recognizing National Wildfire Awareness Month, and Wildfire Community Preparedness Day Saturday, May 7.
Wildfires are unplanned fires that burn in natural areas like forests, grasslands, or prairies. According to a City of Kingman press release, these dangerous fires spread quickly and can devastate not only wildlife and natural areas, but also communities.
