On May 24, 2021, notice was provided in the Salinas Riverbed, from Niblick Bridge to the city limits north of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, that the Paso Robles Fire Chief had designated the area as high fire risk area. This included instructions that all persons must vacate, and all property had to be removed by May 25, 2021.

The Community Action Team (CAT), in conjunction with the Paso Robles Fire Department and the Community Services Department, have all worked towards obtaining compliance by identifying and monitoring fire sources, removing trash and discarded materials and cleaning up unsanitary sites. Once cleaned, sites were found reestablished including having open fire pits, propane tanks, gas powered generators, large Car/RV batteries, discarded drug paraphernalia, trash and unsanitary conditions.
