Misson Statement

Friends of the Smokey Bear Balloon Inc., is a non-profit corporation dedicated to assisting federal, state, and local agencies to educate and convey messages to prevent human-caused wildfires through the use of the Smokey Bear balloons and the accompanying trailer and our antique fire truck which provides opportunities for special exhibits, presentations, and demonstrations to gather support for forest conservation.

In addition we stimulate active support from schools, businesses, industries, civic clubs, and groups of persons interested in protecting America's natural resources.
