Following the beginning of the Thomas Fire, local community partners determined that the United Way organizations, in both counties, are uniquely positioned and qualified to manage the disaster fund, accept contributions, make distributions, promote the fund and provide a report to the community on how the funds were used. "The large amounts of mud and debris are making access and progress challenging", Friday's Santa Barbara County Fire incident update said. Many people in the area had just returned home from evacuations due to the wildfire. Nearly the entire community of Montecito ― around 10,000 people ― was as emergency responders continued to sift through the rubble. "It was literally a carpet of mud and debris everywhere".

The teams will turn over their data to Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Management and Ventura County Office of Emergency Services, who will develop emergency preparedness and response plans for their respective communities.

On Friday, officials warned about the potential for additional mudslides, noting that the risk of flooding is high until vegetation returns ― which could take five years.

Federal and state authorities are now examining the burn area to assess the risks for flooding and other post-fire hazards.
