City of Malibu to Hold Series of Public Safety Town Hall Meetings Starting with Fire Season Preparedness on June 29

The City of Malibu is holding a town hall meeting on Thursday, June 29 at 7:00 PM at City Hall to offer residents information about what to expect from the coming fire season, how they can prepare their families, pets and properties, what to expect in case of evacuations, and what the City is doing to be prepared.

The meeting will be the first of a series of regularly scheduled town hall meetings to discuss public safety related issues. Future topics may include earthquakes, terrorist or active shooter incidents, storms and flooding.

The record-setting rainfall this past winter has caused heavy growth of vegetation in the mountains and natural areas in and around Malibu. As summer progresses and the vegetation dries out, it can create large amounts of potential fuel for wildfires.

The meeting on June 29 will feature speakers from the L.A. County Fire Department, L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, American Red Cross, L.A. County Animal Services Department, as well as Malibu’s Public Safety Manager Susan Dueñas.

The Fire Department will discuss what they expect from the coming fire season based on this winter’s heavy rain and vegetation growth. The meeting will also offer information on how residents should make or update their family emergency preparedness plans, including having “go bags” prepared with clothing, cash, medication and other essentials.

Topics of Discussion

  • What people should expect from the process of conducting evacuations
  • What steps they can do to prepare for evacuations
  • When and how residents will be able to return to their properties following evacuations
  • How Sheriff’s Deputies will ensure neighborhoods remain secure during evacuations
  • What residents should do with their pets and large animals, such as horses, during an evacuation
  • How residents can ensure that their properties have proper brush clearance to give firefighters “defensible spaces”
  • What the City of Malibu and other government agencies are doing to be prepared

The meeting takes place at 7:00 PM at City Hall in the Multi-Purpose Room. All are welcome to attend, no RSVPs are required. Refreshments will be provided. For more information, contact Public Safety Manager Susan Dueñas at 310-456-2489 ext. 313 or email SDuenas@malibucity.org.
