This alert takes priority over the ongoing COVID-19 SELECTIVE DEPLOY status.
the NBRID-Berryessa Highlands water system are advising residents of Berryessa Highlands and Oakridge Estates to NOT USE THE TAP WATER FOR DRINKING AND COOKING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
A CERT team will staff a water distribution table at the volunteer fire house on Steele Canyon Road Monday through Saturday until there is no further need.
Weather conditions and smoke from wildfires may pose safety hazards. All personnel are advised to be aware of these conditions and act accordingly. COVID-19 safety protocols are still in effect. Visit our Realtime Information page for additional links for situational awareness.
SELECTIVE DEPLOY is an advisory that CERT team leaders have been notified of a scheduled emergency management activity which will require extended CERT assistance during an incident. CERT leaders will schedule volunteers for the activity once availability has been determined and confirm with each individual. Specific deployment instructions including rally point, date, time, activity and equipment requirements will be provided with the confirmation. Planning leaders will report their schedules to the Napa County OES or coordinating official as soon as possible. Upon completing the scheduled activity, the team leader will provide the appropriate contact with an updated status and results of the activity.
Deployment is only authorized for CERT volunteers who have been directly contacted and scheduled for deployment
