We’ve shared this before, but I wanted to share it with you again. The evacuation directives continue to move North.

CLICK HERE to stay updated on evacuations across the region. If you are in the red shaded region, you are in a mandatory evacuation zone. If you live within the orange shaded region, you are in an evacuation warning zone—meaning you should be prepared to evacuate at a moment’s notice.

Be sure to gather all important papers/documents, irreplaceable valuables, and several days worth of clothing and toiletries. Don’t forget your pets and pet food. Also, know that the 101, North and South, are open and should your plan include a movement in either direction, you are able to make those moves.

If you are evacuating, you can find accommodations HERE. You can find additional information on evacuation shelters and pet evacuation in Santa Barbara County HERE.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone throughout the Central Coast who are being impacted by this tragedy. Know that you are not alone—first responders and firefighters are working around the clock to keep us safe. Neighbors and friends are checking on and helping people throughout our communities. I thank each and every one of you for your tireless efforts and dedication. 

Please be safe, smart, and vigilant as this fire continues to grow.
