Severe Drought and Emergency Preparedness

Low Water at Scotts Flat

Last week, the Nevada County Office of Emergency Services launched a new zone-based evacuation tool called Zone Haven. Go to ReadyNevadaCounty.org/KnowYourZone to look up your evacuation zone (and those where you spend a lot of time, like work or school). In the event of a wildfire or other emergency, residents will be evacuated by zone. Make sure you are also signed up for Code Red alerts: MyNevadaCounty.com/CodeRed. Know your zone and sign up for Code Red alerts for a quick and safe evacuation!

Fire agencies are telling us that current fuel moistures are what they would normally expect to see in September or October. With the record low snowpack we saw this winter, combined with far less rainfall than average, we all need to be extra cautious with fire. Numerous recent fires have been caused by escaped burn piles. For those of you working on creating defensible space around your home, please note that all open residential burning has been suspended as of 8 am on May 24.

Instead of burning, you should take your yard waste to one of these free green waste disposal events:

June 11-14, 2021
7:00 am-3:00 pm, Friday–Monday
12625 Brunswick Rd, Grass Valley, CA

Accepted items: residential green waste, tree and plant trimmings, weeds, leaves, branches, and items less than six inches in diameter.

Prohibited items: commercial green waste, Scotch broom, poison oak, blackberry, items with a diameter greater than six inches, tree stumps, root balls, household waste, or trash.
