Red Flag Warning for Talbot County

EASTON, MD – The Talbot County Department of Emergency Services has issued a red flag warning for Talbot County and asks that all residents refrain from any outdoor burning until 8:00 PM tonight.

DES Division Chief Tim McNeal who heads the County’s 9-1-1 Center (Talbot Center) said, in the release: "In addition to asking there be no outdoor burning at this time, we also want to remind the public to contact Talbot Center (410-822-0095) in the future to report any controlled burning. This will prevent us from dispatching fire units to a controlled burning.”

A Red Flag Warning means high fire danger with increased probability of a fire quickly spreading.
