We are in season with several small wildfires already taking place. Please note how low the moisture levels are for the Verde region, 39% of normal. For the Cherry region, 53% of normal. There will be a Prescott Basin Ops Drill on April 19th and 20th from 08:30 to 15:00. Weather permitting, there will be live fire on both days. There will be multiple burns with task force assignments given out at the ICP after the 08:30 check-in. Prepare to see some smoke on those days, weather permitting.
