    Dear Friend,
    As you know, the Cascade Fire in Yuba County has forced some mandatory evacuations. Here are helpful links to keep track of the latest news about the fire:
    Immediate, real-time updates are available from Cal Fire's twitter account: https://twitter.com/CALFIRENEU 
    Here is Cal Fire's website with the latest updates on the Yuba County Fire: http://www.fire.ca.gov/current_incidents/incidentdetails/Index/1871 
    If you have not already signed up for emergency alerts through Yuba County, you can do so here: https://public.coderedweb.com/cne/en-US/FBE5B4D6F361 
    Updates about evacuation orders and shelters are available from the Yuba County Office of Emergency Services: http://www.bepreparedyuba.org/Pages/During/Home.aspx 
    Here is a full list of emergency services in Yuba County, and their contact information: http://www.co.yuba.ca.us/Departments/OES/ContactInformation.aspx 
    A shelter is open at the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds at 442 Franklin Avenue in Yuba City, and the shelter is accepting large animals. Here is a list of items you should pack if you plan on staying at the shelter:
    Family emergency plan
    Important paperwork, such as medical cards, insurance papers, and a list of medications, to name a few
    Emergency kit, stocked with a flashlight, battery powered radio, extra batteries, and backup batteries for your cell phones
    A change of clothes, toiletries, medications, pillows, blankets/sleeping bags
    Diapers, formula and other supplies, if you have an infant
    Kennel, leash, food, special toys, if you have a pet
    If you are residing in an area that is under an evacuation advisory and not a mandatory order, please take this time to pack your belongings and be prepared to evacuate if necessary. 
    I will continue to post updates on my Facebook and Twitter pages. Please stay safe and comply with all evacuation orders.
