Storm Season Safety: Evacuation Warning vs. Evacuation Order

Feb 07, 2024 09:02AM ● By California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services News Release

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - As a significant series of storms continue to impact parts of the state, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) reminded all Californians Monday about the importance of being prepared.

Extreme weather such as heavy rainfall and snow are contributing to dangerous conditions. To keep Californians safe, law enforcement issues evacuation warnings or orders ahead of major emergencies, such as weather events.

An evacuation warning means there’s impending danger to your life or property. If a warning is given, assume an evacuation order will follow. Start gathering important items for your family and pets. Any individuals who need extra time to evacuate, or anyone with large animals, should pack up and leave when a warning is issued.

An evacuation order means there’s an immediate threat to your life and you need to leave immediately. Follow all directions from law enforcement to ensure you and your family evacuate safely.

Leave as soon as evacuation is recommended to avoid being caught in flood waters or road congestion. In some emergencies, officials might not have time to knock on every door. If you are advised to leave, don’t hesitate!

Officials will determine the evacuation areas and escape routes based on the danger’s location, behavior, terrain, etc.

You will be advised of potential evacuations as early as possible.

Do not return to your home until officials determine it’s safe. Notifications will be given as soon as possible.

When a disaster hits, you might not have time to gather necessary supplies. Pack a Go Bag so it’s ready to grab when there’s an emergency. Items to take are important documents, cash, medicine and important medical information, and phone charger and backup battery.

Plan ahead for your pets and know where you will take or leave them during an emergency. During an emergency, local animal rescue organizations work with law enforcement and fire departments to rescue as many animals as they can. You should also have a go-bag packed for your animals with the following items: pet carrier for each pet, two-week supply of food and water, pet first-aid kit, identification tags, vaccination information, medications and dosing instructions, plastic bags for waste disposal and leashes/collars/harnesses.
