BE STORM READY – Canyon Fire Burn Area & Holy Fire Burn Area Preparedness

Post Date:12/05/2018 9:25 AM

As of today, December 5, there is a possibility of thunderstorms occurring this evening into tomorrow evening over the Canyon Fire burn area. Thunderstorms are unpredicatable, can occur without warning, and are capable of triggering debris flow. Residents in the Canyon Fire burn area are asked to remain vigilant, stay alert, and monitor information sources. Those living in this area should follow city information and think about what to do should they be asked to leave their homes. 

For our neighbors recently affected by the Holy Fire, please visit  www.RivCoReady.org/StormReady to find out if you live in an at-risk area. 

Officials will provide warning if possible but may only be able to alert the public with just a few minutes notice for future evacuations. It is critical that you remain vigilant and take personal responsibility for your surroundings. To learn more about winter preparedness, click here.
