LOS ANGELES (Fri., Nov. 16, 2018) – As Los Angeles County continues to help residents return to their homes, the need for temporary shelters in the impacted areas has decreased. In an effort to manage emergency resources, and provide a high level of care to affected Los Angeles County residents, Taft High School (5461 Winnetka Ave, Woodland Hills, CA 91364) has been deactivated as an emergency shelter, and those residents have been re-sheltered at Pierce College. The evacuation shelters at Pierce College and Palisades High School will remain open until further notice. “We are thankful to the hardworking staff and volunteers of the Taft High School shelter for their dedication and compassion in helping those displaced by the Woolsey Fire in their greatest time of need,” said Jeff Reeb, Director, Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management . “Even though we are deactivating this shelter, Los Angeles County and its partners remain committed to help those affected by the wildfire on their road to recovery.”

Residents can continue to access relief and recovery services by contacting 211 LA County at 2-1-1. Those impacted by the Woolsey Fire may also get the latest information, updates and resources by visiting
