As of 7:30 p.m. yesterday, Beale Air Force Base opened its gates to support the local communities. This was an immediate and emergency action to support a portion of the 180,000 evacuees of the Oroville Dam emergency situation. We have received approximately 400 evacuees. Our efforts today are to transition those requiring long term and specialized care to a Red Cross designated location. Our efforts are being coordinated through the California Office of Emergency Services. Beale Air Force Base continues to provide shelter and support to our local community partners and citizens. Please contact the Beale Air Force Base Emergency Family Action Center for information regarding those sheltered in our facilities, (530)-634-5627.
