What If THERE IS AN EVACUATION ?
how will I know ?

KNOW YOUR ZONE?

The San Luis Obispo County Office of Emergency Service is introducing a countywide pre-established evacuation zones to enhances public safety and emergency response capabilities. These Zones simplifies evacuation procedures and improve communications during critical situations.

WHAT CAN I DO ???

HOME HARDENING

Flying embers from a wildfire can destroy homes up to a mile away and are responsible for the destruction of most homes during a wildfire. Using fire-resistant materials can protect your home from wildfires. Hardening your home can help increase its likelihood of survival.

DEFENSIBLE SPACE

Defensible space is the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surround it. Creating 100′ of defensible space around your home provides firefighters a safe area to work in, to defend your home.

EVACUATION PLANNING

Are you set with a wildfire action plan and emergency supply kit? Give your household the best chance of surviving a wildfire by being ready to go. Being ready to go also means knowing when to evacuate and what to do if you become trapped.
