Shelby County to discontinue Fire Danger updates


November 15th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

The Shelby County Emergency Management Agency says it will discontinue the biweekly local Fire Danger updates. EMA officials say the decision was made after a general consensus of the majority of the Fire Chiefs of Shelby County recommended the move.

Field work in the County is complete, and although the quantity of fuel which would make control of fires difficult is greatly diminished, officials say the area remains very dry, and anyone planning a large burn is encouraged to contact the Emergency Management Agency and their local Fire Chief.
