Images, stories, and news about the wildfires engulfing Southern California have likely crossed your path recently. Wildfires are natural disasters that can often be both predicted and prevented.
The Texas A&M Forest Service will host a free online weather webinar with the fire outlook for the upcoming months, information on weather forecasting, state predictive services, and where to find fire information and wildfire prevention tips on Dec. 14 at 10am.
The state of Texas tasks Texas A&M Forest Service with responding to wildfires. They study weather patterns, drought cycles, and the statues of vegetation across the state. This helps predict when and where dangerous fire conditions may occur. Additionally, when wildfires ignite, Texas A&M Forest Service has strategically placed teams of firefighters and equipment throughout the state to ensure they are able to respond quickly.
The purpose of the free wildfire weather outlook webinar on Dec. 14 is to disseminate information to Texas meteorologists to better inform Texans on the upcoming wildfire potential.
