Signs in place alerting residents of fire danger

    HARLAN -- Shelby County Emergency Management and the Harlan Fire Department recently placed this new sign in Harlan to alert the public of the current fire danger rating.  The sign is located across from Hy-Vee near Sorensen Equipment and the Cenex gas station.
    Similar signs have been placed in communities throughout Shelby County.  Harlan Fire Chief Roger Bissen said this sign is in a place where traffic is at its highest in Harlan, achieving maximum visibility for those traveling in town.  The fire danger rating system was developed to let residents know when it is and isn’t safe to burn in the county.  High winds and dry conditions are of concern this time of year, officials said.
