Ketchikan Misty Fiords Ranger District employees and Smokey Bear participated in the Women in Safe Homes (WISH) safety-themed family night at Ward Lake in August. Marla Booth presented information on hiking, bear awareness, camping, and the food lockers that are now located at each of the campsites. Smokey Bear also dropped by for pictures with families and community members.

Other participants included Ketchikan Volunteer Search and Rescue Squad with a demonstration by their rescue dogs, as well as the Alaska State Troopers with their dogs doing a drug detection demonstration.

“WISH Family Services would like to express their gratitude to the Forest Service, the Alaska State Troopers and Ketchikan Volunteer Search and Rescue Squad in sharing their knowledge at the Family Night”, said Family Resource Specialist Will Peterson of WISH. “We thank them for their hard work to keep our Ketchikan community safe”.
