Fire Weather & Red Flag Warnings

Part of preserving the beauty of where we live is preventing wildfires, especially those caused by humans. When the weather is particularly hot, dry, and windy, and the these conditions can increase the potential risk for accidental fires. Fire Weather and Red Flag Warnings create a rating and warning system for fire hazards, urging people to use increased caution when using fire or ignitable materials. 

The criteria for issuing a fire warning or red flag warning vary by geographic area.
