Fire Stations Offer Free Sandbags To Residents In Case Of Mudslides

Heavy rain brings with it the potential for mudslides and flooding, especially after a long drought. Local Fire Stations are offering free sandbags for residents to protect their homes and property from adverse weather.

Sandbags

The pair of winter storms forecast the for the second half of this week will bring much needed rain to the Santa Clarita Valley and the greater Los Angeles area. But, the city of Santa Clarita and Los Angeles County Fire Department are warning residents of the potential for mudslides and flooding.

Residents whose property may be affected can pick up up to 25 free sandbags from any county Fire Station in the Santa Clarita Valley. Sand is also available at Fire Station 73 on Railroad Avenue and Station 124 on Hemingway Avenue in Stevenson Ranch. Bring a shovel to fill the sandbags.

Due to the recent drought, soil has become dry and hardened, increasing the flood risk, because water could run off the top of the ground and overwhelm rivers and streams.

Trying to cross a flooded area on foot or by car could be very dangerous, said Fire Department Battalion Chief Mark Savage in a video public service announcement.

“Never underestimate the power of moving water,” he said. “…It looks like a stream or river that doesn’t look to strong, but it would be possibly a very dangerous event if they tried to either drive across moving water or drive across moving water… Just stay away from the water and keep yourself and your family safe.”
