Who Needs to Be Prepared?

This website is dedicated to provide vital tips and information for Santa Clarita residents that live or work near fire burn areas that may be susceptible to mud or debris flows during heavy rains. However, we encourage all residents to use this website to learn about what to do before, during and after inclement weather such as heavy winds or rains.

Since recently burned areas do not have matured vegetation, the top soil can wash off and potentially create destructive mud flow down slope from fire burn areas.

For the next three to five years, the fire has made homes in following burn areas susceptible to sudden water, mud and debris slides.
