Girdwood Forest Fair Safety Tips

5 tips from the Girdwood Fire Department to help keep you safe when you visit Forest Fair this weekend.

  1. Drive the speed limit, obey the parking signs. Park the car and take advantage of the free local Girdwood shuttle bus.
  2. Tune into 88.9 FM KEUL, Glacier City Radio from Bird to Hope to listen to Forest Fair live and get updates on traffic.
  3. Be bear aware, Girdwood has many resident black and brown bears. If you are camping or renting a cabin in Girdwood, keep all food indoors  or in bear proof containers. These are available to rent from the Glacier Ranger District in Girdwood and other outdoor rental locations in Anchorage. Do not keep food in tents. Do not run from bears. Know how to use bear spray.
  4. Keep hydrated. If you need us, please call 911 and give a good description of where you are, and give firefighters room to work.
  5. Report any fires or fireworks. As Always fireworks are illegal. NO open fires this weekend.
