act before rain to protect vulnerable slopes
November 15, 2018. By Cassy Aoyagi: Even as we hope for rain to combat fire and quench thirsty landscapes, rain isn’t all good news. It brings the possibility of mudslide, debris flow and flood. Here an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.
If you are in areas recently impacted by the Woolsey Fire:
- Place preventative sandbags. They are available at LA County Fire Stations (Locate).
- Clear waterways, if stable and safe, prior to the start of rain.
- Avoid all waterways, man made and natural, once rain starts.
- Do not enter moving water.
