Shelby County Emergency Management Director Bob Seivert says fire stations and other locations in the County may change their Fire Danger signs from “High,” to “Moderate.” Seivert says they expect the fire danger to be lower over the next couple of days, due to the recent rain. The “Moderate” rating will remain in-place until the next update, or Thursday, which ever comes first.

Seivert asks residents of Shelby County to continue to notify the Shelby County EMA/9-1-1 and your local fire chief, prior to igniting any burns. He also asks you to use common sense, and attend all open burning projects until they are fully extinguished.
