LA COUNTY OPENS SOME TRAILS INCLUDING IN MALIBU AREA STARTING SAT, MAY 9
The County announced that some trails in the County would be open for use starting Saturday, May 9, with public health protocols in place to help prevent the spread of #coronavirus. All beaches, the Malibu Pier, and beach parking lots remain closed, and no-parking zones are enforced on PCH. Although the City does not control access to federal, state and county controlled open spaces and trails in the Malibu area, the City wants to reassure the Malibu community that it is working with its partner agencies on messaging to the public about the importance of following all LA County Department of Public Health (LADPH) guidelines of physical distancing, use of cloth face coverings and other safety protocols that the agencies have in place. The City Manager has requested additional patrols of the Malibu area by the Sheriff’s Department. The City urges all out-of-area visitors to be mindful and respectful of the local community, and follow all LADPH protocols while enjoying the trails of the Santa Monica Mountains. Residents can report violations of public health and safety orders to the LADPH at 888-700-9995, Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

WILDFIRE PREPAREDNESS WEEK GUIDE & VIDEO TO GET PREPARED WHILE STAYING HOME
This week is California's Wildfire Preparedness Week, and Listos California and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) encourage Californians to get prepared for wildfires while staying safe at home. Wildfire is Malibu's number one public safety threat, and fires are not taking time off during the pandemic, so we all have to continue the effort toward community-wide preparedness. The campaign by the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) encourages community members to take these five free-and-easy steps:
1 - Get official alerts to know what to do. Subscribe at www.MalibuCity.org/News.
2 - Make a plan to protect your family by creating an emergency contact list and an evacuation plan.
3 - Prepare a go-bag with things you need.
4 - Build a stay box to stay safe at home for when you cannot leave.
5 - Help friends and neighbors get ready. View or print out the Disaster Ready Guide at https://www.valleyvision.org/wp-content/uploads/Disaster-Ready-Guide-Digital-SelfPrint-Eng.pdf.
