Critical fire weather conditions this week prompt reminder to take precautions
Gusty Santa Ana winds throughout the week with low humidity will result in high fire danger and Red Flag warnings.
A Red Flag warning means critical fire weather conditions are either happening now or will soon. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire potential and erratic fire behavior.
Residents are urged to be aware of their surrounding conditions and avoid outdoor activities that can cause a spark near dry vegetation and follow local fire restrictions. Remember to have an emergency plan in place, emergency preparedness kits at home and vehicles full of fuel.
