Sandbags are available to Malibu residents at local Los Angeles County Fire Stations, while supplies last. Residents, with valid ID, may bag up to 25 sandbags per household. Sandbags, sand, and shovels will be provided. Sandbags may also be available at Zuma Beach, while supplies last.

LA County Public Works teams are assessing property needs throughout the City and will leave documentation indicating whether the property requires more than 25 sandbags. That document can be presented at the fire station to allow residents to fill more than 25 bags.

For additional information about how to prepare for possible mudslides or rockslides, view the City's Storm Preparation Guidelines.

LA County Dept of Public Works also published a handbook on how to properly place sandbags and other debris-blocking materials.
