Los Angeles County Fire Department (Important Flood Safety Message)

Urges All Residents to Prepare for Flood Safety

Post Date:11/20/2018 11:49 AM

 Due to an increased probability of mud and debris flow in the Woolsey Fire burn area, it is important to plan and prepare for the increased potential of flooding, mudslides and debris run-off. The Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) urges residents living in areas prone to debris flow and mudslides to be prepared for danger:

-  Obtain sandbags ahead of time. Sandbags (and instructions about how to use them) are available at most local LACoFD fire stations.
-  Know how to shut off all utilities.   Remember, water and electricity do not mix.
-  Flowing water is an instant danger zone. Stay away from flood control channels, catch basins, canyons and natural waterways which are susceptible to flooding during     periods of heavy rain.
-  Do not attempt to cross flooded areas and never enter moving water.
-  If you become isolated, seek the highest ground available  and wait for help.
- If flooding traps you in your car, stay inside. If the water rises higher, wait on top of your car for  assistance. Do not step into moving water around your car.
- If you see someone who has been swept into moving water, do not enter the water and attempt a rescue. Call 911 for emergency rescue personnel and, if possible, throw them a flotation device.
- Be ready to go if told to evacuate
