SANDBAGS In anticipation of heavy rains or storms, San Diego Fire-Rescue provides sandbags for City residents and businesses at every San Diego fire station and the Lifeguard stations in Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, La Jolla Shores and Pacific Beach. There is a limit of 10 sandbags per household or business. Sandbags will only be available when personnel are at the station. Should they arrive to find the crew is on an emergency call, people may want to purchase sandbags from a retailer that carries them. While we are able to provide the sandbags, the fire stations will not have sand available.
