CCSO: Remember - Ready, Set, Go during fire season

COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona is expected to have a dangerous fire season in 2018, and that is evidenced by the number of fires already experienced in the first quarter.

Dry conditions exacerbated by wind and hot weather make for the potential of a perfect storm with the effects of a deadly fire.

Please don't be careless with open flames, secure any vehicle chains that may drag on the pavement, DO NOT have open campfires unless authorized, and yard work with equipment that may spark is discouraged.

Remember the plan of be READY, to get SET, and GO when needed.

We want to keep you safe and secure for a long time to come, so please help us to help you.
