Spare the Air, Wildfire Air Quality Advisory: Beach fires banned until further notice

The air quality in Monterey County is being adversely impacted by the wildfires in Northern California.  As a result, the Air District has issued an air quality advisory requesting that wood burning be suspended while we experience significant levels of smoke from the wildfires up north (http://mbard.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/WildfireSmokeAdvisory_10.11.2017.pdf).  To help in this effort, the City of Monterey has banned beach fires on City and State-managed beachs until further notice and the advisory is lifted. Thank you for your cooperation.

Beach Fires Prohibited

9-1-1 Call if you can, text if you can't

9-1-1 Call if you can, text if you can't

9-1-1 text messageCALL IF YOU CAN, TEXT IF YOU CAN'T... that is the message being spread by Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito County emergency communications centers. You can now text 911 to reach emergency responders in the tri-county area. Texting to 9-1-1 can be a benefit to those who are hearing impaired or in a situation where calling may put them at a greater risk such as domestic violence, while hiding from an intruder, or in a vehicle being driven by a drunk driver.

Texting 9-1-1 should be used as a last resort as calling 9-1-1 is faster; text messages can take longer to receive and may come in out of sequence. Location accuracy isn’t always as good as calling and, if you’re roaming or the text can’t get through, it will bounce back with a message saying “call 9-1-1."

Currently there are no language translation services available; all text messages to 9-1-1 must be in English using the Latin (regular) character set. The text messages should not include acronyms, emojis, or photos and they cannot be sent as a group message.

If you are deaf, hard of hearing or speech disabled and the service is unavailable, use a teletypewriter or TTY if available.
