CA-SCU LOMA FIRE PIO MAP
Gilroy, CA - Fire crews will remain throughout the fire perimeter in the coming weeks to provide fire suppression repair, remove firefighting equipment, mop up and patrol. Please drive slowly and use caution as emergency crews and equipment are still working in the area. CAL FIRE urges those that see significant smoke to call 9-1-1. As fires continue to threaten our communities, resources are being effectively appropriated to battle wildland fires across the State of California.
CAL FIRE Incident Management Team #2 appreciates all the community support in battling the Loma Fire. The Team will transition management of the Loma Fire back to the local CAL FIRE Santa Clara Unit on Wednesday, October 5, at 7:00 AM. For additional information please call (408) 779-0930
All residents are asked to be READY: Create and maintain defensible space and harden your home against flying embers. Get SET: Prepare your family and home ahead of time for the possibility of having to evacuate. Be Ready to GO! Take the evacuation steps necessary to give your family and home the best chance of surviving a wildfire.
We encourage the public to remain prepared year-round for wildfires by visiting the www.readyforwildfire.org website. The best show of support is having your home and property “fire-ready”.
****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
