Placer County has launched a new Red Flag Warning Awareness Program, where fire agency participants will display red flags in visible locations on red flag warning days to alert residents in times of elevated wildfire risk. The National Weather Service issues red flag warnings to alert fire departments of the onset, or possible onset, of critical weather and dry conditions that could lead to rapid or flag PNG dramatic increases in wildfire activity. A Red Flag Warning is issued for weather events that may result in extreme fire behavior that will occur within 24 hours and could exist in the next 12-72 hours. A Red Flag Warning is the highest fire alert. During these times, extreme caution is urged for all residents and guests because a simple spark can cause a major wildfire.
