Living in Florida we go through rainy and "dry" seasons. Our dry season may not be the same as somewhere up north or out west, but non the less is categorized as a dry season for our climate.
Florida seems like it always has a high humidity no matter what season it is or how dry it is according to statistics.
How often do you pay attention to what the fire danger rating is though? Did you know that all national parks and fire stations have it listed and change the signs as the threat changes?
It is most noticeable at fire stations because they are normally in busy, high traffic areas of cities in Florida so you do not have to go out of your way to look. It is easy to check the sign driving by to see if you are in a high, low, or medium fire danger warning.
You may want to pay closer attention to these signs if you are planning summer parties that may include a bbq grill or a fire pit as it may pose a larger danger than you realize.
Next time you pass a fire station take a quick look to see where your area is at for fire danger.
