The City of Flagstaff has established two self-filling sandbag stations for those impacted by the Pipeline Fire who live on the west side of Flagstaff. The first station is in Thorpe Park, at the parking lot at the north end of N. Aztec St. between Frances Short Pond and the softball fields. The second station is located at the intersection of Schultz Pass Rd and E Mt Elden Lookout Rd. (commonly called the Schultz “Y”).
Residents are asked to bring their own shovels and/or buckets to help them make sandbags at the self-serve sandbag stations. The City is unable to load sandbags into private vehicles. To view a video on how to properly fill and install sandbags, please visit https://youtu.be/Oc0q1xWpm8k. Residents in the neighborhoods of Grandview and Sunnyside who are impacted by Museum Fire post wildfire flooding can access sandbags at the self-fill sandbag station at 2625 N King St.
More information on the impact of the Pipeline Fire on flood risks within the City of Flagstaff will be provided at the June 28 City Council meeting, which will be held in person at City Hall and streamed online at https://www.flagstaff.az.gov/1461/Streaming-City-Council-Meetings.
