High Fire Risk in the Berkeley Hills

Hills residents should use extreme caution through Saturday due to a high level of fire danger from very hot temperatures and gusting winds.

The "Red Flag Warning" from the National Weather Service warns people of the possibility of rapidly-spreading vegetation fires.

Berkeley residents alongside the East Bay hills are encouraged to park in their driveways or garages, leaving streets clear for emergency vehicles. Use extreme caution when operating BBQs and power equipment. Fireworks are completely forbidden in the City of Berkeley and surrounding areas.

To learn more about preparing to evacuate from a wildfire, visit Berkeley's Wildfire Evacuation website.  The best way to stay on top of emergency situations in Berkeley is to sign up for the Alameda County Alert System (AC Alert). AC Alert is one system that shares emergency information in Berkeley. To learn more about how to receive information in an emergency, visit the Emergency Alerting Page.
