Flooding frequently occurs throughout the county during and after periods of heavy rainfall. Therefore, everyone with homes at risk should take precautions before the rainy season and be prepared for the worst. Whereas the County does not provide free sand and sandbags as preventative or precautionary measures, it does preposition sand and sandbags at various locations in order to be prepared for emergencies, as they occur. City residents should contact their city offices to learn of any city-operated locations where sand and sandbags may be procured. In addition to sand and gravel businesses, etc, the following fire stations and Department of Public Works Corporation yards in the unincorporated County normally have sand and sandbags to be distributed, as available, for emergencies occurring in the unincorporated area:
