Posted on

A Red Flag Warning was issued for the Santa Monica Mountains beginning at midnight on Monday, October 9, 2017 and continuing through Tuesday October 10, 2017 at 10:00 AM.

Red Flag warnings identify time periods when conditions are ideal for wildfires: gusty winds, low relative humidity, and low fuel moisture levels. During Red Flag warnings it is especially important to:

  • Report any signs of smoke immediately to emergency responders. If on the Malibu campus, call Public Safety at (310) 506-4441. At all other locations, report smoke by calling 911.
  • Smoke only in approved locations.  Use caution when disposing of cigarettes and ensure that they are completely extinguished.
  • Minimize any use of open flame in outdoor settings.

Pepperdine Public Safety is monitoring the situation and is prepared to respond to potential wildfires. Additional information regarding Red Flag warnings and Pepperdine’s wildfire response plans is available on the University’s Emergency Information Page, http://emergency.pepperdine.edu, and in the Emergency Preparedness Guide found in WaveNet beginning on page 16.
