The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag warning for the Santa Monica Mountains, including the Malibu Campus, from Friday, July 6 at 3 AM to Saturday, July 7 at 6 PM due to high temperatures, low humidity, and expected sustained winds of 20-35 MPH.

Red Flag warnings issued by the National Weather Service identify time periods when conditions are ideal for wildfires. 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.
  • Use caution when disposing of cigarettes and ensure that they are completely extinguished.
  • Minimize any use of open flame in outdoor settings.
