With the quick and unpredictable spread of wildfires in California, state officials are urging residents to sign up for alerts on evacuation orders and other urgent information from county officials.
Some are getting automatic alerts through text. Those who don’t already receive them can sign up through the following web pages:
- Orange County: AlertOC.org
- San Bernardino County: SBCounty.gov/sbcfire/Tens/TensContact.aspx
- Riverside County: RivCoReady.org/AlertRivCo
- Los Angeles County: LACounty.gov/emergency/alert-la
- Ventura County: ReadyVenturaCounty.org/vc-alert
“If you get an evacuation order, don’t wait – GO,” Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office said.
