BSFR ON TV WITH DRY CONDITION POINTERS

(Ft. Lauderdale, FL) – Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Capt. Mark Miceli tells CBS 4 TV reporter Ted Scouten the impact of dry conditions and the potential fire threat in urban areas. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue is monitoring the Keetch-Byrum Drought index, which was in the 650-700 range in most of central Broward on Wednesday, from I-95 in the east to the Everglades in the west. The conditions are favorable for the occurrence and spread of wildfires. Wind, temperature, relative humidity and atmospheric stability also influence the actual fire danger.
