Monsoon Season Preparedness

Posted on July 11, 2018 at 5:35 PM by Adam Rosen

With stormy skies and unpredictable weather, Peoria has already began preparing for our monsoon protocol. This includes replenishing sand and sandbags at the fire stations and loading our response trucks with extra shovels, chainsaws, and pumping equipment. 

We encourage residents to prepare for monsoon season by trimming trees, making an emergency kit and if you live in an area prone to flooding, stocking up on sandbags. Residents should bring a shovels and will need to fill their own bags.
