Please RECOMMEND this diary!

Post NO pictures as these diaries are going to be difficult to download as they get larger.

Use first comment for emergency info.  

Please reply to my second comment with offers to volunteer a liveblog diary.  This fire is going to last a long time, unfortunately, and we will need several diaries to cover breaking info.

A few More tips from prior Live Blogs:

Mayor Sanders is asking for licensed doctors and nurses to relieve current medical staff at Qualcomm Stadium. Licensed personnel willing to volunteer for an 8-10 hour shift are asked to report to Gate "A" at Qualcomm Stadium.

They are also asking for Certified teachers

Try text messaging rather than cellphone calls, since texting uses far less network resources. Text messages might go through when cell calls won't. However, to reach 911, you have to make a phone call - it's my understanding that texting to 911 won't work until the next generation of network infrastructure/software is developed/released.

Text messages can be pricey depending on the plan you have with your cellphone service provider, but should be used during emergencies to limit stress on resources.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
