What are Evacuation Zones?

In the event of a wildfire or an emergency situation, law enforcement and fire agencies issue evacuation warnings or evacuation orders for impacted areas. These notices are issued for a Zone with an evacuation Status.

Evacuation Status levels
  • Evacuation order states that there is an immediate threat to life. This is a lawful order to leave now. The area is lawfully closed to public access.

  • Shelter In Place is an order to go indoors. Shut and lock doors and windows. Prepare to self-sustain until further notice and/or contacted by emergency personnel for additional direction.
