REACT MONITOR
Official Publication Flagler County Assist REACT Team #4800

www.welcome.to/react

FIRE SEASON IS HERE!!!
Fire Danger has been flirting with VERY HIGH the past few days. The drought index is running above 450. One dry windy day and that could be it.

Our Team, along with ARES/RACES will be counted upon to help should a wildfire strike our area. Remember, a wildfire can strike very fast with little warning.

KNOW THE TERMS

Red Flag Warning – Means that conditions are at their absolute worst and a wildfire could occur.
Drought Index – This runs from 0-800. 0 is saturated ground, and 800 is a desert. During 1998, we were running near 750.
Fire Danger – What the overall fire danger is. Fire Danger runs, Low, Moderate, High, Very High, and Extreme.
Fire Readiness Level – Use by DOF, it is like our system, Level 1-5. 5 is the highest.

COMMUNICATIONS PRIORITIES.
Remember, we now have more capabilities now than we had before. Our efforts will not all be concentrated at the EOC, however that is still our priority in staffing. Other locations will possibly include Florida Water Corp., Palm Cable,  Internet Services, etc. Getting information to the public is a priority and we can help fill the gaps.
