Evacuations 

Evacuate immediately if told to do so. Evacuation instructions will be broadcasted by local authorities, radio, television or telephone.  You may receive a telephone call by the Wide Area Rapid Notification (WARN), a automated system to get emergency information to the public. 

When activated, the WARN system has the ability to send a pre-recorded message to thousands of telephone customers every minute.  If you receive such a call listen carefully to the instructions.  Information may include the nature of the emergency, the need to evacuate or shelter in place, shelter locations and how to receive further information.  The recorded message will be repeated allowing you to write down any necessary information.

 

As you evacuate:

  • Remain calm
  • Follow instructions from local authorities
  • Use travel routes specified by local authorities
  • Lock your home
  • Shut all doors and windows
  • Take your emergency kit
  • Take a portable radio

 

If you know you have time:

  • Shut off gas or propane
  • Do not shut off water and electricity
  • Post a note of when you left and where you are going
  • Make arrangements for your animals and pets
