Sand and sandbags are available to residents of Central Fire to help combat potential flooding conditions. We currently have sand and sandbags free for the public at our Live Oak station at 930 17th Avenue, Santa Cruz (the area right next to the Admin Office entrance, on the other side of the chain link fence), and the Aptos station at 6934 Soquel Drive, Aptos (just inside the public parking area).
Residents are responsible for filling their own bags and are limited to 5 bags per residence.
Other local sources for sand and sandbags throughout the county (as well as instructions on the filling and placement of sandbags) are included on our Sandbags page. For more information, please contact our Administrative office via email or phone, at 831-479-6842.
