Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now or will shortly. The combination of
strong winds... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures can
contribute to extreme fire behavior.

Be careful with any activities that could potentially lead to a
wildfire. Camping... 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.
