Red River Army Depot released an advisory this morning through their Facebook page concerning control burns around the Depot.

The Advisory reads:

Red River will be conducting prescribed burns from January through May as weather allows. Burns are conducted annually for timber stand improvement, wildlife habitat management and to help protect the depot from destructive wildfires. The Depot Land Managers are always mindful of potential smoke impacts to the depot and the local communities and try to minimize those impacts as much as possible.

So please do not be alarmed if you see smoke coming from the Depot over the next few months.

For more information please contact RRAD at (903) 334-4446.
