In preparation for the upcoming storms, Culver City first responders are taking multiple steps to ensure safety and ongoing preparation. The Culver City Fire Department has sand and sandbags available at Fire Station One in downtown Culver City. Sandbags are available to residents, 10 per household, at our headquarters fire station location at 9505 Culver Blvd. They are self-serve and can be found to the rear of the fire station. Sandbags are also still available for free at the City Yard on Jefferson Boulevard. They will continue to monitor for significant property damage.
The Culver City Police Department is working with the Housing and Human Services team, patrolling flood channels to ensure there aren't any unhoused residents affected by the rainstorms. The Public Works Department is monitoring and will clear major debris throughout the City. You are also encouraged to help staff with trash pickup by placing your bins 12 inches from the curb.
