During impending rain storms the City makes available sand and bags FREE of charge to Glendale residents at two sandbag stations accessible 24 hours a day.

Residents must provide their own shovel to use for filling the bags. A large pot or cup works great as well. Sand and bags are provided for residents to fill the bags at the sandbag station and take them home. Please do not take empty bags or loads of sand for filling elsewhere.

Sandbag Locations:

Bonsall Park North
Northeast corner of 59th Ave. and Bethany Home Road (Next to the hockey rink)

Glendale Fire Department Support Services
7501 N.55th Ave. (Orangewood & 55th avenues)

Early access to a sandbag station can be obtained through a service request in our Glendale One service portal (click on the GlendaleOne logo below). Please select  "Service Request" enter your address, then select "Neighborhood Concerns" and finally, "Sandbags."
