Fire Danger Index
The fire danger index provides an indication of wildland fire potential. Fire danger indexes are calculated considering temperature, humidity, wind speed, cloud cover and vegetative condition, and are rated as Low, Medium, High, Very High or Extreme.
Fires are more likely to occur on higher index days.
Certain outdoor activities may be prohibited when a fire danger index is considered Very High or Extreme.
Hunters are asked to be aware of current fire danger indexes. Updated information is available through ndresponse.gov, or from a county sheriff’s office.
