“The number one contribution to the fire-fighting effort everyone can make is to avoid the coast” to allow first responders to do their jobs and keep roads clear for evacuees, said CalFire Deputy Chief Jonathan Cox.
Pacifica Mayor Deirdre Martin said, “First responders from across Northern California need to focus on stamping out the vast number of wildfires and protecting lives and property. They don’t need or want to be fighting traffic so someone can enjoy a day at the beach.” Read the news release.
