Officials get ready for wildfire season

-A A +A

Los Alamos > Town remains under drought conditions

By Tris DeRoma

If the recent wildfire in the San Ildefonso Pueblo is any indication, Los Alamos residents need to keep a close eye out for wildfires this season. It’s only March when the fire broke out, and fire season lasts until July.
Local fire departments are also armed with the latest outlook from the Southwest Coordination Center. The SWCC, based in Albuquerque, serves as a focal point and resource center for fire departments in the region.
According to Justin Grider, a deputy chief for the Los Alamos Fire Department, The SWCC is saying Los Alamos is still under drought conditions and “they will probably intensify” he said, adding that will probably mean fire hazard conditions will intensify too.
