Bobcat Fire-- Evacuation Warning (Be Prepared and Ready) in Effect for the Duarte Mesa

The Unified Incident Command Teams of the Angeles National Forest and the Los Angeles County Fire Department are directing residents in the foothills area below the Bobcat Fire, including the Duarte Mesa, to be prepared to evacuate, as there continues to be rapid fire growth. The Duarte Mesa is the area off of Mt. Olive north of Woodlyn Lane in Bradbury. Be advised-- this is an Evacuation Warning. 

Residents following Ready, Set, Go! should have evacuation plans in place, organized their emergency evacuation supplies, and have essential evacuation personal belongings easily accessible. Vehicles should be fully fueled, facing out in their driveways and ready to Go!   

When Incident Command and Law Enforcement decide to issue an Evacuation Order, residents should be able to quickly gather their families and pets and leave the area to designated evacuation sites, or to family and friends’ homes outside the fire area. Please make those arrangements now. Delaying these preparedness actions will prevent fire crews from suppression activities and compromise the safety of the public and first responders.  

Those who with large animals, horses and cattle, should begin to move those animals now. Do not wait until the Evacuation Order to begin to move them out of the area. Accommodations are being made for animals at the Pomona Fairgrounds and Santa Anita Racetrack (limited capacity). 

Evacuation sites for those who could be displaced are being prepared-- more information will follow should an Evacuation Order be implemented.
