Is It a Red Flag Day?: Another Special Section was produced in 2003, which focused on the causes of wildfire in Marin County and guidelines for defensible space. This section was distributed to 36,000 IJ subscribers, and an additional 4,000 copies were sent to residents in the vicinity of Point Reyes National Seashore after the devastating fires in Southern California. The severity of these fires was a result of weather conditions. A Red Flag Day is designated when sustained winds and dry conditions create a weather forecast in which fire will be very difficult to control.
