BOBCAT FIRE EVACUATION ORDER

The Unified Incident Command Teams of the Angeles National Forest and the Los Angeles County Fire Department are ORDERING residents in the foothills North of the Bobcat Fire to evacuate, there continues to be rapid fire growth. Be advised this is an EVACUATION ORDER

EVACUATION GEOGRAPHIC DETAILS:

The following areas are under an EVACUATION ORDER:

  • Juniper Hills

  • Devils Punchbowl

  • Paradise Springs

  • Including the area East of Devils Punch Bowl Rd, South of the Big Pines Hwy, North of the Big Rock Creek, and West of Jackson Lake

Residents in these areas should quickly gather their families and pets and head to your preplanned location outside of the fire evacuation zones.  Residents must take these necessary steps to ensure your family’s safety.  Delaying evacuation will prevent fire crews from suppression activities and compromise the safety of the public and first responders. 

Right now, you should:

Review your Evacuation Plan Checklist.

  1. Ensure your Emergency Supply Kit is in your vehicle.
  2. Cover-up to protect against heat and flying embers. Wear long pants, long sleeve shirt, heavy shoes/boots, cap, dry bandanna for face cover, goggles or glasses. 100% cotton is preferable.
  3. Locate your pets and take them with you.
  4. This season is a bit different due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Remember to be Fire Safe and COVID Aware.  Ensure that you continue to take the necessary safety precautions in regard to COVID-19 when evacuating. 

Those with large animals (i.e. horses and cattle) who have not previously moved these animals, should do so immediately.  If you have not made prior arrangements, large animals may be taken to the AV Fairgrounds.

Residents who have not secured an evacuation destination may contact the Red Cross at 800-675-5799 for further assistance in finding an evacuation location.

Do not return to your home until fire officials determine it is safe. Notification that it is safe to return home will be given as soon as possible considering safety and accessibility.
