Be Prepared! Information and Resources about CALFIRE

These past few days have been challenging for many of our families.  We wanted to provide you with information related to the fires impacting our area.  Cal Fire has issued several news alerts and evacuation orders for three of the four counties in and around Bay Area. We are closely monitoring the information issued by Cal-Fire and have sent out alerts to people in the evacuation zones.

There are major fires all around us and I want to make sure you have the information you need to stay safe and be prepared.


Certain areas in Santa Clara County are under evacuation orders or warnings. Below is the list from CalFire as of 8/21/2020 8:07 AM. Visit https://www.fire.ca.gov/incidents/2020/8/18/scu-lightning-complex to check for updates.


If you need more information or looking for assistance, then you can send an email to bandhu@mediamahima.com.
