What you need to know about the California wildfires
SANTA MONICA, Calif.
— The California wildfires are now in full effect, but the state is still in the midst of a long-term recovery effort, and that’s not likely to change for many months.
On Monday, the state’s Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (DFP) announced the wildfire season would end in the next two weeks and that the public was advised to be prepared to stay away from homes, businesses, parks, and recreation facilities.
“It is critical that we provide clear guidance to people that are preparing to leave their homes and workplaces,” said Lt.
“It’s also critical that the community knows where they can get emergency services and information.
All Californians should have access to the resources they need.”
State agencies will be in full control of the state in the coming weeks and months, and they will continue to manage the wildfires through an emergency operation.
The California Department of Water Resources and the California Department for Forestry and Fish will coordinate their efforts in coordination with the California Division of Forestry.
The Department of Emergency Management (DEC) is also preparing for the fire season to begin, but will not be able to deploy the resources it needs in the state until the winter months of November and December.
The DFW has said it is expecting up to 40,000 fires to be burned across the state, with up to 10,000 firefighters and up to 1,500 aircraft in the air.
The agency said in an emergency declaration it will be able deploy some 1,000 helicopters and helicopters equipped with fuel-sensing equipment.
The state has also issued a mandatory evacuation order for the San Francisco Bay Area and the cities of Oakland, Berkeley, and Sacramento.
The fire season was first called a “state of emergency” in June, but it has since been extended until mid-September.
The state also declared a state of emergency for the coastal counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, and San Mateo.
The governor declared a “states of emergency in San Francisco and Orange counties,” which are in the Central Valley.
In Oakland, the governor declared an emergency for San Francisco County, and in Oakland County, he declared an “emergency for Alameda County, which includes San Francisco, Oakland, and the city of Oakland.”
The wildfires have forced tens of thousands of people from their homes, forced tens in thousands of businesses to close, and caused thousands of homes to be destroyed.
The number of fatalities from the fires has exceeded 2,500.
