Cal Fire says, “Be READY to go at any moment’s notice!” Prepare yourselves. Ask your family and neighbors to inform you if they hear a hi-lo siren as an evacuation order warning. For more information, watch our “How to Evacuate during Pandemic” and “Nixle Sign Up” vlogs.
CalFire urged people to not enter the evacuation zones if you try to return to your home as it takes firefighters away from battling the blaze. DO NOT be stubborn to stay in your homes during the evacuation order. You will be dealt with by law enforcement if you violate evacuation orders.
