The City Of Flagstaff Is Encouraging People To Volunteer To Help Sandbagging Efforts For Residents Of The Pipeline West Burn Area

The City of Flagstaff is encouraging residents to help support those impacted by post-Pipeline Fire flooding on the west side of Flagstaff. Volunteers are encouraged to visit either of the City’s self-fill sandbag stations anytime during daylight hours, seven days a week to create sandbags. Empty sandbags and cinder sand are provided at the sites. Volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves, sun protection, shovels, and water for hydration. Completed sandbags can be left at the sites, where they can then be picked up by residents impacted by flooding. Self-formed groups, such as school groups, church groups, or other organizations are especially encouraged to volunteer. The self-fill stations are located at Thorpe Park, in the parking lot between Francis Short Pond and the softball fields and at the Schultz Creek Trailhead, commonly referred to as the “Schultz Y” at Schultz Pass Road and East Mt. Elden Lookout Road. Residents impacted by flooding are reminded that sandbags should only be placed around their primary residence and not around property lines or yards.
