Proposed Fire Zone Change for Berkeley County, SC
This proposal addresses the need to modify the existing fire zone configuration for Berkeley County, SC, which is located in the WFO Charleston, SC County Warning and Forecast Area. WFO Charleston issues fire weather forecasts for the entire county. More specific fire forecast services are needed.
Given the large size of the county, it is believed that the best method to initiate such services is to split the county into two distinct “zones.” This will allow forecasters to initiate more specific warning and forecast services for the “tidal” portions of Berkeley County, SC.
