Sheila Kuehl

Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl announced two town hall forums, scheduled for Dec. 13 and 16, for Woolsey Fire victims earlier this week.

Kuehl, along with agencies such as the LA County Office of Emergency Management, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and LA County Public Works, will be on hand to “provide resources for residents and answer questions that have arisen following the fires.”

The supervisor represents the third district, which covers a large portion of areas affected by the Woolsey Fire including Malibu, Agoura and Agoura Hills.

The first forum on Thursday, Dec. 13, will be held at King Gillette Ranch (26800 Mulholland Highway, Calabasas), from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The second will be on Sunday, Dec. 16, at Pepperdine University (24255 Pacific Coast Highway), from 1-3 p.m.

On Dec. 11, days after the town halls announcement, Kuehl’s office announced a motion to create a “working group” in charge of reviewing what happened during and in the aftermath of the Woolsey Fire.

The group would also oversee identifying “best practices for evacuation and repopulation procedures,” per a statement shared by Kuehl’s office.

The motion comes before the Board of Supervisors next Tuesday, Dec. 18, for a vote.
