Two public Listening Sessions to capture the experiences of residents affected by the Woolsey Fire will be held on February 23 and March 3. The public testimony during the Listening Sessions will inform the report being prepared by LA County about emergency notification, evacuation and repopulation procedures during the Woolsey Fire.

The Listening sessions will be held on:

Saturday, February 23
10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Elkins Auditorium, Pepperdine University
Malibu, CA

Sunday, March 3
10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
King Gillette Ranch
Calabasas, CA

LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and a Task Force of more than two dozen community leaders will be present during the Sessions to listen to public testimony.

The Woolsey Fire, a fast-moving brush fire that was 14 miles wide, with a footprint of 150 square miles, and driven by gusts of up to 70 mph, was the most destructive fire L.A. County has ever seen. It moved from the 101 Freeway to the Pacific Ocean in just five hours. Seventy thousand homes, businesses, and other structures lay in the fire’s path, and a quarter of a million people were evacuated.
