Know Your Zone

"Please go to our new Zonehaven tool at, where you can look up your evacuation zone. Once you know it, write it down multiple places so you won’t forget. Handy stickers and magnets are available in the Rood Center lobby and will soon be popping up at events, libraries, and fire stations throughout Nevada County.

And, of course, If you haven’t yet, be sure to sign up for CodeRED emergency alerts at Zonehaven does not replace CodeRED emergency alerts, but supplements it for a quick and safer evacuation by zone!

Make sure your Go Bag is packed and refreshed. Check that medications and food are not expired and you’ve got the right sizes and supplies for everyone in the family, including pets. In the event of a fire, minutes count, so make sure to pack your Go Bag and work out evacuation plans now and communicate them to your top five trusted allies in the event of a disaster or emergency. Your five allies are people that will check on you and that you can communicate with in an emergency, so they know you are safe, or if you need help."
