The American Red Cross of the Pacific Coast has set up an evacuation center for residents impacted by the Park Hill Fire. The center is located at the Santa Margarita Elementary School, 22070 H Street, Santa Margarita, CA 93453.
Red Cross disaster volunteers are prepared to transition the evacuation center into a full shelter if the evacuations remain in place through the evening.
“We’ll continue to work closely with our government partners to determine the next steps,” said Communications Director Jessica Piffero, “If a full shelter is needed our team is prepared to provide lodging, meals, and comfort the affected residents.”
The Red Cross urges everyone to follow evacuation orders from local law enforcement and have an emergency kit ready go for any disaster including wildfires. Click here to learn more.
