Facebook activates multiple Safety Check pages for Southern California fires


Facebook has activated multiple Safety Check pages as wildfires continue in the Los Angeles area.

The feature allows users to let their friends know they are safe, search for friends in the affected area who are safe, or ask friends whether they are safe. Safety Check is part of Facebook's Crisis Response feature that also includes information about the event and ways the public can help.
