The City of Napa wants our residents to be informed, safe and prepared. Here is what you can do:
UPDATED 4:00PM, Wednesday, 10/11
The air quality is obviously poor and a concern for many people. Wearing an N95 mask is recommended.
If you can see, taste, or feel smoke, you should immediately minimize outdoor activities. This is especially important if you have health concerns, are elderly, are pregnant, or have a child in your care.
Smoke from wildfires and structure fires contain harmful chemicals that can affect your health. Smoke can cause eye and throat irritation, coughing, and difficulty breathing. Learn more here.
Water supply for the of the City is intact, drinkable and available.
There is a precautionary water boil notice in place for the already-evacuated Silverado Country Club area. Here is a map of the area.
The City of Napa is issuing a boil water notice for customers who live on:
Old Coach Road
Or live in any area North of Hagen Road and east of the Silverado Trail
This includes all of the Silverado Country Club, Monticello Park and Vichy Ave Areas.
To be as prepared as possible, it is advised that you keep your vehicle with a half a tank of fuel at all times. It can't hurt to be ready in case you need to make a drive. If you are out of town, please fuel up outside of Napa.
PG&E is working to get power restored where they can. Thousands remain without power and PG&E can only address areas where there is now fire danger to their crews or infrastructure.
Travel & Driving
Please adhere to all road closures - law enforcement is supporting fire crews by keeping traffic out of affected areas and ask for your PATIENCE and understanding in not trying to enter these areas.
In the event of Evacuations
Currently the City of Napa does not have any areas evacuated. Cal Fire is monitoring the fire situation in all areas, along with Napa Fire, Napa Police, and our law enforcement partners. If an evacuation is ordered, we want our residents to be as prepared as possible. Have a bag packed and ready to leave, and plan to be gone upwards of 4-7 days.
-Notify relatives to make sure they are aware of your location
-Make sure you have cash and credit cards
-Gather valuables and important documents
-Gather pets or make arrangements for their safety
-Collect personal needs and supplies
-Make a written list of contact information for loved ones
-Pack extra chargers for electronics
-Tell your trusted neighbors or family/friends of your plans
-Check on your elderly neighbors and provide help if you can
-If you get evacuated, prepare to be away for 4-7 days
Re-population in evacuated areas will not occur until the fire danger has been cleared. Residents will not be allowed back to their homes until Cal Fire is sure that it is safe to repopulate.
