With wildfire season year ‘round now, and a worsening drought, the potential for another devastating disaster like the Woolsey Fire is a concern. Residents can get warnings that their homes are in the path of a fire or evacuations have been ordered by signing up for an LAFD alert. You can sign up for city-wide alerts or just for the San Fernando Valley. When fires break out the fire department looks at their map, where the fire originated and where it is heading, and alerts anyone in that zone. It takes just minutes to sign up at LAFD.org/alerts. Those who don’t sign up or don’t want to share their cellphone numbers or email addresses will still receive some alerts from the federal Wireless Emergency Alert, that sends evacuation orders based on location, or the Emergency Alert System which interrupts local radio and television broadcasts in larger emergencies.
