As residents continue to return to areas that have already begun repopulating, we remind you of these important safety messages: 

 

  • Be mindful of people working in the area as essential services are restored. Stay vigilant as you drive into areas that have been impacted by the fire as road crews, firefighters, and other personnel are focused on completing their assignments. As traffic flow is introduced into these areas, people may be more focused on the damage and not aware of their immediate surroundings. Stay alert and pay attention.
  • As the area is repopulated, be aware that there may be intermittent power outages and associated street closures as power is restored throughout the impacted areas.
  • There are many hazards that may exist when returning to your home after a wildfire. These hazards can include fire ash, damaged utilities, exposed and burned structures, as well as hazardous materials. To protect yourself from these hazards, it is important to utilize personal protective equipment that can include breathing protection (N-95 rated respirators), protective clothing, gloves, and boots, as well as eye/face protection.
