CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Fire Department hosted its first town hall meeting on Monday to inform the public as temperatures rise. 

Chico Fire Department Chief Steve Standridge outlined the terminology used with the code red alert system, emergency notification systems and evacuations. 

Many citizens appeared at the meeting and were concerned about the upcoming fire season. 

There were 37 grass and wild fires last fire season. 

Chief Standridge said based on Monday's attendance at the meeting, the department plans to have another town hall very soon. 

We will post the date as soon as we receive it.

We're closing out the month of November in a pleasant way in northern California Tuesday. We'll have some gusty wind tonight and early Wednesday, but December will begin with warmer and drier than average weather.
