Disaster Preparedness

Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services--water, gas, electricity, or telephones--were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. Families can cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team. Knowing what to do is your best protection and your responsibility.

Evacuation & Road Closure Terminology
Terminology is consistent with California statewide standards

Evacuation Order There is an immediate threat to life. It is a lawful order to leave now and the area is lawfully closed to public access. It is important to note that not all evacuation orders begin with an evacuation warning.
Evacuation Warning There is a potential threat to life and/or property. Those who require additional time to evacuate, and those with pets and/or livestock are encouraged to leave now.
Shelter in Place Go indoors. Shut and lock your doors and windows and be prepared to self-sustain until further notice and/or you are contacted by emergency personnel for additional direction.
Evacuation Orders Lifted       This is the formal announcement lifting evacuations in an area currently under evacuation.
Hard Closure Closed to all traffic except Fire and Law Enforcement.
Soft Closure Closed to all traffic except Fire, Law Enforcement, and critical incident resources (i.e. utility, Caltrans, City/County Roads, or those needed to repair or restore infrastructure.)
Resident Only Closure            Soft closure with the additional allowance of residents and local government agencies assisting with response and recovery.
