Red Flag Warning Feather Flags
Yuba Watershed Protection and Fire Safe council has purchased 15 feather flags to be displayed when NOAA has declared a Red Flag Warning due to dangerous fire conditions in our area.
We currently have 15 flags and plan to display them at our rural post offices, Cal Fire stations, Yuba River Ranger District office (see picture above), and other places of business as needed to get coverage throughout the five Fire Districts. The flags will be displayed during the Red Flag Warning period.
Want to know what a red flag warning is? NOAA explains that it means “warm temperatures, very low humidities, and stronger winds are expected to combine to produce an increased risk of fire danger.” Red Flag Warning (weather.gov)
