Cooler temperatures do not reduce fire threat


The community can help the Grady County Fire Department and save fuel, time and wear and tear on their vehicles with one simple step: picking up the phone. 

As the temperatures cool, there begin to be problems with controlled burns not being called in, Dale Thompson, Grady County Emergency Management Director, said at the Grady County's Commissioners meeting on Monday.  

As a result of these fires not being reported beforehand, trucks are sent out to investigate only to find that the burn was intentional and is under control. 

Thompson said that when someone decides to do a controlled burn, they should call the Grady County Sheriff's Department (405.224.0984) in advance so that the fire is not mistakenly reported as out of control. 

Also on the weather side, a cold front will be moving in on Friday which could result in rainfall for the county this weekend, Thompson said.
