A Community Prepared
During a fire, our community responsibility is to respond in a manner that reduces risks to ourselves, our families, and our property. Evacuation advisories are issued quickly as conditions warrant and no single method of communication is fail safe. During a fire, monitor local radio stations, talk to responders and emergency management personnel, and stay connected to trusted social media sites.
- Ensure that your family and workers know evacuation routes, meeting locations, safe zones, and how to contact you.
- Keep apprised of the status of the fire: location, size, proximity to home or harvest operations.
- Listen to weather updates.
- Abide by fire precaution levels, burn bans, and emergency responder warnings.
- Evacuation Alerts will be used to notify residents, businesses, and landowners. You do NOT need to wait until you are notified to leave.
