There are currently no fires in or threatening the communities.
The San Diego County’s Department of Public Works (DPW) is once again making sandbags available to residents of unincorporated communities to help them protect their homes, neighborhoods and streets from flooding, erosion, mud and debris flows.
One such location is North County Fire Protection District (NCFPD) Fire Station 4 located at: Fallbrook, 92028. For other locations you can visit the Office of Emergency Services link on this page and search “sand bags.”
Sandbags and fill material are provided to residents who live in unincorporated communities on a first come first served, limited basis. As supplies run low DPW will do everything possible to replenish the materials. NCFPD is happy to monitor and request additional materials, but has no control over availability. You may call 760-723-2024 to confirm availability. Don’t forget to bring a shovel.
