Preparing for Rain After Wildfires

October 13, 2020

The City of Santa Rosa and the County of Sonoma encourage residents living in and around wildfire burn areas to prepare for the rainy season. Preparing now, for future winter storms, is important for your safety and the protection of our watershed. Residents living in and around burn areas should be aware of potential threats and take measures to prepare property for the rainy season. Many properties within and downstream of any burn area are at higher risk for flash floods, rock falls, debris flows, and mud flows.
