Residents Urged to Prepare for Possible Evacuations Due to Bobcat Fire

PASADENA, Calif.—The City of Pasadena continues to closely monitor the Bobcat Fire in the Angeles National Forest. An evacuation warning is in effect for residents in the foothill neighborhoods of Pasadena. While there is no immediate threat, winds could shift direction of the fire, posing a threat to our community.

Residents should have a plan in place (including for any animals) and have supplies packed ahead of time in case you need to evacuate. Preparation tips and an emergency supply checklist can be found in LA County Fire Department's Ready, Set, Go Guide.

Residents should register for the Pasadena Local Emergency Alert System (PLEAS) to receive voice, email and/or text emergency notifications. Notifications are targeted to geographic areas. Subscribers will receive an alert if action is required of residents in their community, such as evacuation.

We also recommend registering with the Alert LA County mass notification system.
