REALTIME INCIDENT DASHBOARD

ACTIVE INCIDENTS

On Monday, March 25, 2024, the Sheriff’s Office was advised by Caltrans of a new landslide that had occurred just South of the original slide adjacent to SR150. Sheriff’s personnel from the Fillmore station and Sheriff’s Emergency Services responded to the scene and ultimately issued an evacuation warning to 3 homes. Two Caltrans geologists had been on scene prior to the slide occurring and witnessed the event take place. A subsequent drone flight was completed by Sheriff’s Emergency Services confirming the reported conditions. This slide appears to be an expansion of the original slide and has resulted in more nested soil along the hillside.

MISSING PERSON

 Evacuation Warnings have been issued to select residents along Ojai/Santa Paula Road near the new portion of the slide.
