Community Safety Patrols 2020

Thousand Oaks Downed Tree
Santa Ana Winds Topples Tree in Thousand Oaks

The City of Thousand Oaks has an extra set of eyes and ears looking out for weather related hazards! The D.A.R.T. night patrols throughout the city are scheduled starting in 2020. Uniformed volunteer members will be cruising and watching areas prone to weather related hazards such as downed trees, flooding, and brush fires. Patrol team members are trained in police radio, traffic control, evacuation notification, and emergency first aid. Historical Winter rain, wind and fire events have the ability to quickly overwhelm first responders, and the D.A.R.T. team provides a force multiplier to help neighborhoods in the event of emergency.
