Pepperdine Monitoring Wildfires – Update #2

Posted on

A number of fires continue to burn in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. These are strong, wind-driven fires. All manner of firefighting efforts are being employed, including air operations. The University is monitoring all conditions in the area, and in particular the Hill and Woolsey fires.

The Malibu campus is not currently affected by these evacuation orders. The Calabasas campus was vacated earlier and is now under mandatory evacuation.

This is a very fluid situation and is developing rapidly with changing fire conditions. Mandatory evacuation orders are currently in place for large and growing portions of Calabasas, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, Oak Park, and other areas. The 101 freeway remains closed in both directions between the 23 freeway and the Santa Rosa exit.

Please be advised of the following:

  • Community members whose homes are affected by the fire or road closures should follow the directions of their local governmental agencies.
  • Road condition information is available on the University’s Road Condition hotline at 310.506.ROAD (7623).
  • The latest information from Pepperdine’s EOC is also available on the University’s Emergency Information Page or Emergency Recorded Message line (888.286.5659).
