U.S. Forest Service Dispatch Center ready for Red Flag Warning
When a Red Flag Warning is in effect, it means that wildfires are almost a certainty. Dry weather, warm temperatures, and high winds are a recipe for trouble in the forests. The U.S. Forest Service Dispatch Center works to find the fires in their earliest stages and deal with them as quickly and efficiently as possible. John McGowan and Photo-journalist Michael Bulthuis spent some time in the Dispatch Center today to watch Dispatchers at work.
