McKenzie River Reflections

Fire prevention posterMcKenzie High’s Jonathan Mahody and Sydney King are being featured on posters promoting fire safety and prevention.

As you travel around the McKenzie Bridge community, keep an eye out for the new green and blue posters with Smokey and two local high school students. These posters are part of the McKenzie River Ranger District’s “Smokey and the Eagles” program that rewards outstanding student athletes while highlighting the importance of fire prevention practices. Each year, two students who demonstrate a high level of community and athletic involvement, as well as hold a high grade point average, are selected to appear in the posters.
