The first priority for getting emergency fire information is to make sure you are signed up for official alerts on Everbridge and Nixle. See our blog post for details about how to get signed up.
If there is a Neighborhood Fire Safe Council in your area you should also make sure you are included on their phone tree.
Courtesy of our local CAL FIRE Mendocino Unit (MEU) Public Information Officer (PIO) here are some other resources for getting information about events:
CAL FIRE MEU -News Releases (includes incident updates) fires 10 acres or more when unit PIO is on duty
Following CAL FIRE MEU social media: fires 5 acres or more when unit PIO is on duty
CAL FIRE Region: fires over 10 acres–this can be delayed as the unit is providing the information to region.
