Do not wait to evacuate if you feel unsafe. Leaving early increases your chance of survival and late evacuations put you, your neighbors, and first responders at risk.
KNOW YOUR EVACUATION ROUTES
Be familiar with and practice taking all possible routes away from your home. Be aware of nearby road conditions and potential obstacles, such as locked gates and overgrown vegetation. Talk to your neighbors about evacuation concerns, and work together to mitigate potential hazards.
Nevada County Sheriff, Grass Valley Police, and Nevada City Police have all installed new sirens on their patrol cars and will only use them for evacuations. Familiarize yourself with the sound and immediately initiate you evacuation plan if you hear it. Nevada County Sheriff’s Office have created a video to help prepare you and your family. You can see and hear it here.
