SAFETY MESSAGE – A few important reminders for everyone when there are active fires and fire danger remains high:

  1. Stay vigilant in monitoring current fire conditions with information from official sources (such as the websites above and Twitter pages listed below). Watch out for rumors and misinformation on social media, and be careful not to share unverified information.
  2. Pay attention to and follow road closures and any evacuation warnings. A reminder to drive slowly and yield to emergency personnel in the area.
  3. If you are in an area with smokey air and have health conditions, avoid exercise and wear an N-95 mask to filter out smoke particles if needed.
  4. Be kind to all public safety and power workers - it's easy to feel fear and anger in situations like these, but everyone is trying to do their jobs to keep you safe. 

DISASTER DISTRESS INFORMATION - During and following a natural or human-caused disaster, levels of stress and anxiety can be very high, in particular for people who have previously experienced the trauma of living through previous fires. Some people (both adults and children) may have a hard time coping with difficult emotions, including months or even years later. Learn the warning signs for disaster-related distress, which may include things such as the inability to concentrate, feelings or panic and loss of control, feeling triggered by other events even when there is no direct danger to you, depression and thoughts of suicude, and more. You can also call the Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-985-5990 or text "TalkWithUs" to 66746 for emotional support and resources - you don't have to go through this alone!

WILDFIRE PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION - If you are in or near a high risk fire area, it is vital to always be prepared. Check out these CalFIRE Wildfire Tips for things you can do, and encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to do the same.

During and after disasters, the most valuable donation you can make is often donating money to official organizations such as the Red Cross (be wary of unofficial online donations), because it provides the most flexibility for purchasing items needed for disaster victims. Check before dropping off any donation goods to shelters or first responders, as they can become overwhelmed with donations they can't use, and it requires them to divert resources from their primary activities.
