  1. I remember seeing a large Smokey the Bear banner when I was a kid. Smokey does teach some good lessons about fire prevention. Printing and spreading those fire safety ads is a good thing as it promotes eco-friendliness and an utmost care to the environment. Speaking of which, it’s been a while since I saw these old Smokey ads.
