Woolsey Fire Two-Year Anniversary Commemoration Video
On November 9, 2020, the City of Malibu commemorated the two-year anniversary of the Woolsey Fire which ravaged Malibu, burning 100,000 acres, taking three lives, destroying nearly 500 homes and leaving our entire community traumatized. Malibu will never forget. But we have come through stronger than before, and the entire community has worked diligently to rebuild to become more resilient and more prepared. The City Council has made protecting public safety and rebuilding after Woolsey the City’s top priorities. The City Council has declared November 9 as Malibu’s Annual Day of Preparedness so that we never forget and keep doing everything we can to prevent new tragedies. The City marked the anniversary and Day of Preparedness with a community Emergency Preparedness Competition, meant to recognize those who have gone the extra mile in being ready for wildfires, earthquakes and other disasters, and to encourage everyone in the community to take steps to protect their families, homes and neighborhoods.
