A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now, or will be shortly. A combination of
strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures and
exceptionally dry fuels will create dangerous wildland fire
conditions. Campfires, outdoor grills, smoking materials, chain
saws, and all-terrain vehicles all have the potential to throw a
spark and ignite a dangerous and destructive fire.
Please advise the appropriate officials or fire crews in the
field of this Red Flag Warning.
