Published November 1, 2019

Dear Readers,

I hope you are well considering the outbreak of wildfires over the past week. As fires rage throughout our state, I have had my staff compile the below resources to assist you and your family as our brave first responders put their lives on the line to protect our area.

How should I prepare?


Now’s the time to get ready, so that you and your loved ones will know what to do. Click here to make sure you are prepared.

What should I do about the smoky air? 

It’s important that you wear a breathing mask if you smell smoke. Don’t wait until you see ash floating in the air. Check the air quality at https://airnow.gov/.

Where can I find updated information about the fires?

Alert LA County is a free mass notification system for Los Angeles County residents and businesses. Sign up for emergency alerts here.

How can I report an emergency?


To report an emergency in Los Angeles: Call 911
For non-emergency Los Angeles city services: Call 311

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call my office at (323) 965-1422.
