It's no surprise fires broke out in the city and county this week. We saw winds, temperatures, and humidity ripe for fire danger.

Our outreach staff made sure our homeless neighbors impacted by these fires evacuated and had access to services while proactively outreaching High Fire Hazard Severity Zones (HFHSZ). Thank you to all LAHSA staff who work on outreach, especially our HET members, for helping keep our homeless neighbors safe and informed. And thank you to our firefighters whose bravery, commitment, and selfless actions saved many lives.
