WHY:    
The City and County of Los Angeles have partnered together to hold a series of Town Hall Meetings to address concerns of residents living near the Sayre, Sessnon-Marek, and Station Fire areas.  Damage from the fires has left hillsides and large areas of land susceptible to flooding and debris flows after it rains.

Information will be given out to assist residents in having a readiness and evacuation plan to help reduce the possibility of injury, property damage, or even death. Maps indicating the path a flood or debris flow might take will also be available.
