Heat Wave Advisory

A heat wave is upon us here in the Bay Area. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and high temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior and create health hazards for residents. The National Weather service has issued a Red Flag Warning for the North Bay Mountains and East Bay Hills, but the hot, dry weather will be throughout the region. For this reason the San Jose Fire Department is making the following recommendations:

  1. Avoid strenuous outdoor activity. Stay in cool locations and drink plenty of water. To aid in this Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) will be opening cooling centers this weekend.

  2. Avoid outdoor activities that may lead to fire ignition, including lawn work, driving on dry grass, tossing cigarettes, barbecues and campfires, especially Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Also remember that fireworks are illegal, dangerous and can result in fires and injuries that are easily preventable. 

Based on National Weather Service forecast, City of San José, PRNS will activate cooling centers Saturday 6/23/18 1:00-9:00 p.m.
