As we head into the summer months, the threat of wildfires is very real.
The Gilroy Fire Chief may issue a Local High Fire Risk Warning during times of heightened fire danger.
If this happens, it's crucial to take extra precautions to prevent wildfires and be ready to evacuate if necessary.
With the recent rains, we have a lot of tall grasses that increase our fire danger. Even a small spark can quickly turn into a major wildfire.
Watch for red flags at each Gilroy fire station that indicate a “Local High Fire Risk” warning has been issued, and check Nixle, the City website, and social media for updates.
