One of the primary threats to America’s national forests is the danger of wildfires. Fire management is therefore one of the chief concerns of the U.S. Forest Service. It is critical for forestry officials to know of small fires, so they can contain and extinguish them before they become too big to control. One important step to make this possible is for members of the general public to report fires they notice or accidentally create. This sign was posted at the warden’s office to highlight the place for making such reports.
We’ve recreated this classic National Forest Warden, Report Forest Fires Here sign according to the 1920s standards used for signage posted in national forests across the country. It uses the same classic USFS shield logo and fonts used on vintage national forest signage. Using photos of original signs of this type, we’ve duplicated the precise layout of the sign. The resulting replica is so close to the real thing, even seasoned collectors will have a hard time realizing it’s not an original! Original signs of this type often go on the collector’s market for hundreds or even thousands of dollars. With our replica, you can get a great display piece for only a fraction of the price.
Our National Forest Warden, Report Forest Fires Here guide sign is flat printed on heavy 14-gauge steel. It is made with a glossy, non-reflective finish that is suitable for display both indoors and out. Choose the size that works best for you, from 14 in. × 8 in. all the way up to 63 in. × 36 in. For easy installation, each version has two convenient mounting holes. (Need this sign in a size not shown here? Or perhaps another Forest Service sign from any era? Or something entirely different?
