Another high risk of fires today
April 1, 2010

Most of Iowa and Nebraska are under heightened risk of wildfires today -- with an unusual fire danger threat even for central Iowa in addition to critical fire weather conditions for much of Nebraska. The fire threat is a result of high winds, low dewpoints, rising temperatures, and lots of dry fuel out in the open. It cannot be overlooked that the situation seems paradoxical, since Iowa still has a long list of flood warnings, but the flooding was largely the result of snowmelt, and there has been little precipitation in the last two weeks. We still have portable pumps for fire protection available for quick shipment, as well as parts for a wide range of firefighting pumps. It's best to test firefighting equipment now, before it's needed, than to wait until an emergency and discover that parts aren't working.
