MONTECITO, CA – In preparation for the winter season, the Montecito Fire Department will host a community meeting on storm preparedness December 9, 2021 at 6 p.m. at Montecito Union School.

This meeting is in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Barbara County Flood Control, National Weather Service, Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District, and 1st District Supervisor Das Williams. Representatives from each agency will present and discuss the status of our watershed, debris flow risk level, winter storm outlook and preparedness measures.

The community is encouraged to attend this meeting to review winter storm readiness information and to see the updated Storm Impact Consideration Map. This interactive map identifies properties in our community that may be at risk of debris flow or flooding this winter season.

The Storm Impact Consideration Map is utilized by local emergency managers to determine which areas of the community may be asked to evacuate in the event of a forecasted, significant storm this winter.

Following the meeting, the updated Storm Impact Consideration Map will be available at
