Advisory

NWS issued a RED FLAG WARNING for high fire danger Friday. Be alert & properly dispose smoking materials.

Due to strong winds, low relative humidity, and high fire danger, the National Weather Service has issued a RED FLAG WARNING for Friday, April 29 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A FIRE WEATHER WATCH has also been issued for Saturday.

Residents and businesses are encouraged to do their part in helping reduce the risk of a brush fire by following these simple tips:
• Create a 30-foot fire safety zone around your home and other structures; this zone should be an area free of dried or dead grass and vegetation
• Trim your trees and remove any dead branches or leaves
• Keep your gutters, eaves and roof clear of leaves and other debris
• Keep a rolled-up garden hose with a nozzle attached to outside hose valve connections
• Properly dispose of cigarettes and smoking materials
• When camping, follow local agency rules for campfires; do not build a fire without making sure open fires are allowed, and always follow fire safety information
• Add a spark arrester to off-road vehicles and other small internal combustion engines, such as generators
