The monsoon season has arrived in Prescott Valley, and storms can be sudden and unpredictable. Heavy rains are forecast for the next two weeks. If you have vulnerable areas around your home, sandbags can protect your property in the event of a flood. Sand was depleted this week, but it has been replenished.
Bags and sand are now available at the Central Arizona Fire & Medical Authority Station 53, 8555 E. Yavapai Rd.(access the parking lot off Bob Drive). Sand and bags are free of charge, but residents must bring a shovel and fill the provided bags.
