Evacuation Alerts & Orders
Do you know the difference between an Evacuation Alert & Order?
ALERT: Be ready to leave on short notice.
ORDER: Leave the area immediately.
RESCIND: All is safe and you can return home.
If you are under an Evacuation Alert, be ready to leave at a moment’s notice. Have grab-and-go bags packed for all members of your household, including pets, and remember to park your vehicle forward-facing in case you must evacuate quickly.
If you receive an Evacuation Order, keep yourself and your community safe by following it.
Choosing to remain in an area under Evacuation Order puts yourself, your loved ones, and first responders in danger. It’s not worth the risk.
Make a Grab-and-go bag, which is a small emergency kit that's easy to take with you, in case you need to leave right away. It's a good idea to make grab-and-go bags for your home, workplace, and vehicle.
