The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued a smoke advisory today due to heavy smoke from the fires.  The Marin County officials are advising residents impacted by wild fire smoke to take the following precautions:


  • Reduce exposure to smoky air by remaining indoors with windows and doors closed, if possible and if safe.
  • Avoid and/or cancel outdoor activities to avoid unnecessary exposure if you smell smoke.
  • Set air conditioning units and car vent systems to re-circulate to prevent outside air from moving inside.
  • Stay tuned to local media for changes in smoke or weather conditions.
7. Power Outages-
  • PG&E is actively working to both restore power where safe to do so and to de-activate power from some areas to assist with firefighting efforts.
           Updates available on PG&E website: 
8. Registering as safe or finding missing persons-
  • on the American Red Cross site allows you to register that you’re safe and if you’re looking for someone

9.  General Fire Guidelines-
  • Do not call 911 for general information. ONLY call for an emergency including unattended, active flames and life threatening emergencies. Please keep these lines open for emergency responders.
  • If you are in a safe place and not in a mandatory evacuation area, please stay in place and keep roads available for emergency personnel.
  • Due to significant smoke in the region, please stay indoors as much as possible.
