Concord: Ash/Debris Cleanup Advisory


Last updated: April 24, 2018, 9:41 am

The large structure fire in Concord consisted primarily of construction materials (predominately wood). Residents should avoid direct contact and inhalation of ash/debris that was produced by the fire. Residents may use a mild soap and water to clean up ash/debris. To minimize dust generation, residents should consider lightly dampening ash/debris prior to commencing sweeping activities. Swept up ash/debris may be placed in a standard household trash receptacle. Any towels or cleaning materials should be rinsed in a sink that drains to a sanitation sewer. Residents should avoid washing or sweeping ash/debris into storm drains, as this will result in pollution accumulating in nearby creeks and rivers.

HeartSafe Community


A HeartSafe Community is a community where all elements of the Chain of Survival are in place and there is a focus on improving the cardiovascular health of its citizens, thereby increasing the chances that anyone suffering a cardiovascular emergency will have the best possible chance for survival.

Communities throughout Contra Costa County are being invited to join the EMS Agency and the American Heart Association in making Contra Costa County a safer place to live, shop, work and play by challenging all of our communities to achieve HeartSafe Community, or HeartSafe Campus Designation. We encourage our communities already designated to recommit to designation every 2 years. Information on how to achieve this designation can be found below.
