Yosemite West is now open for residents, employees and contractors needing to clean/ repair homes and businesses.
Monday August 13, 2018 at 6 AM, Yosemite West will open to visitors with reservations inside Yosemite West. Wawona Road north of Wawona as well as Glacier Point Road will remain closed to general Yosemite National Park visitors.
The public is reminded to stay vigilant on current fire conditions. Please continue to adhere to road closures and any evacuation warnings. If you see electrical wires on the ground, stay clear and contact PG&E immediately. Trees and poles with deep charring, particularly if still smoking, should be considered hazardous.
To residents of fire damaged areas: Please drive slowly and yield to emergency personnel in the area. As you re-enter your property and evaluate damage, be aware that hazardous conditions may exist, particularly if a residence or out-building burned. Hazards may include asbestos, heavy metals, by-products of plastic combustion and various other chemicals.
We encourage the public to remain prepared year-round for wildfires by visiting thewww.readyforwildfire.org website. The best show of support is having your home and property “fire-ready”.
