This is only an alert, but it is issued in the event that an evacuation order takes effect. When notified of an evacuation alert, you need to do the following to prepare for evacuation:

  • Locate all family members
  • Designate a meeting place outside of the evacuation area
  • Gather essential items like medication, valuable papers and eyeglasses
  • Prepare to move elderly community members, disabled persons and children
  • Have a plan to move livestock to safety
  • Have pet care supplies ready for transportation

In the event of an evacuation order, Emergency Support Services (ESS) sites may be activated for family reunification, referrals to essential services providers and group lodging. Stay tuned to credible news sources for information on evacuation orders and locations of ESS sites.
