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.

Dry weather, sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive elevated fire danger today. We'll have even stronger winds, but cooler temperatures on Tuesday. Fire danger will remain elevated. There will also be a chance for light showers in the Sierra on Tuesday and Wednesday.
