A Red Flag Warning is a forecast warning issued by the Weather Service to inform area firefighting agencies that conditions are ideal for wildland fire ignition.
Warnings can be issued due to drought conditions, when humidity is very low; and especially when high or erratic winds are present, which may include lightning, are a factor.
Mt. Veeder Firesafe Council is asking the public for help when they hear a Red Flag Warning has been issued. And also to be aware of high fire danger with increased probability of a quickly spreading vegetation fire in their area.
