Santa Cruz County Evacuations Lifted #LomaFire
PRESS RELEASE 9/28/16 3pm
SANTA CRUZ COUNTY
Evacuations have been lifted for Santa Cruz County residents displaced by the Loma Fire. There is still an active wild land fire in the area and the Sheriff’s Office encourages residents to remain vigilant. Vehicle traffic in the previously evacuated areas will be limited due to a high number of emergency vehicles on the roadway. It is advised that residents limit travel on the roadway in an effort to reduce gridlock. California Highway Patrol may restrict access to non-residents at check points.
Residents are encouraged to monitor Cal Fire http://www.fire.ca.gov/current_incidents for current fire information. If residents observe fire or other activity that may need an emergency service response, please call 911 or Sheriff’s Office Dispatch (831)471-1121. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for current events.
The Sheriff’s Office wishes to thank residents for their patience and understanding over the last few days. We also wish to thank the outpouring of volunteer and community support which ultimately helped enhance the services we were able to provide to those affected by the Loma Fire.
