Fire Safety & Fire Building

“Fire is a very useful tool. Without it, our forefathers and ancestors would not have survived. It is useful in cooking and keeping you warm. A campfire is also a traditional part of camping out. In building a fire you need to learn about the equipment, safety rules, and the process involved in making a fire.” — AHG Girl Handbook, page 223.
