As storms continue to saturate much of Southern California, the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) Fire and Rescue staff are coordinating with Riverside County Fire to pre-position fire apparatus and personnel in preparation for the rain expected near the site of the Holy Fire.

The following resources have been requested by the County and approved via the California State Mutual Aid Pre-Incident Preparedness Guidelines.

OES Region VI

Riverside County:  CA-OES-201877 – five Type-3 OES Fire Engines, five Type-3 Local Government Fire Engines, two emergency dispatchers.

OES Region I

Orange County: one Type-I dozer and one helicopter

The public is urged to remain aware of their surrounding conditions and to avoid outdoor activities that may be dangerous during the rain event. Also, remember to have an emergency plan in place, emergency preparedness kits at home and vehicles full of fuel; sign-up for emergency alerts; listen to authorities and warnings and be prepared to evacuate if necessary.

The California State Warning Center and State Operations Center will monitor conditions and be ready for further resource requests as necessary throughout the rain event.
