Prevent fires this weekend

Today is the last day of Wildland Fire Prevention and Preparedness Week, but it is important that we prevent fires and prepare for fires at all times. As we come into the weekend, we are expecting to increase in fire danger as temperatures continue to warm and dry. Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches are posted at Fire Weather Warnings. Please use caution with anything that could start a fire. Report new fires to 911.
