Wildfires in California

Last updated: July 22, 2017

FedEx is closely monitoring the wildfires in California. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our team members and we will implement contingency plans as necessary. Events of this nature often cause pickup and delivery delays and disruptions for FedEx customers. FedEx will be prepared to provide service to the best of our ability in areas affected by natural disaster, as local conditions allow.

FedEx cares about your safety and we encourage you to prepare for natural disasters. Click here to learn how to prepare your family.

Shipping to affected areas?
To help avoid delays, we encourage you to contact your recipients to verify whether their location is open or able to receive deliveries before and after the wildfires. In the event of evacuations, shipments not delivered before the wildfires will be secured in one of our facilities. Delivery will be attempted when it is safe to do so.

Note that potential service disruptions may not affect FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, FedEx Freight, FedEx Office, etc. the same. This may result in different levels of impact as well as cities, states and ZIP Codes serviced.
