McPherson Fire Chief Jeff Deal wanted to remind the citizens of McPherson that the area is under a Red Flag Warning.

“The No Fire Flag is being flown above the fire station today, and we are expected at only 20 percent humidity, which is basically no humidity,” Deal said. “That’s extremely dry, plus high winds, so everyone please be cautious and careful throughout the next coming days and I would appreciate if we could pray for moisture because we need it badly.”

A Red Flag Warning is used nationally to give fire departments a warning that weather conditions are ideal for wildland fire combustion and rapid spread.
