If your property has a history of flooding, it’s important to get prepared in advance of a storm. Sand and sandbags are available for Folsom residents and business owners at no charge. The City’s two self-serve sandbag stations are next to Fire Station 36 at 9700 Oak Avenue Parkway and behind City Hall at 50 Natoma Street. The City offers free sandbag materials, including bags, sand and shovels, but bring your own shovel and flashlight in case needed. You may also wish to bring safety goggles and gloves. Sandbags and sand can also be purchased at most major hardware or home improvement stores. Learn how to fill a sandbag and find other useful information at www.folsom.ca.us/sandbags.
