Wildfire Evacuation

Waldo Canyon Fire - Colorado Springs - June 2012

Are you prepared for an evacuation from a wildland fire?
Click on: Wildfire Action Plan Video for information on how to prepare for and what to do if a wildfire evacuation order is issued.  Do not wait for an official notification to evacuate if you feel threatened by a wildland fire.  Leave early and drive away from the fire.

Also, visit the
 Ready, Set, Go! website for more information on evacuation issues.

  

Please click on CodeRED to register for the Douglas County Emergency Mass Notification System that will allow your cell phones, work phones, and email to be contacted as well as your home phone, should an emergency event or evacuation notice affect the area where you live.  Add additional members of your family and their contact info by seperate registration for each person at your address.

 

Douglas County also offers a program for citizens with special needs that may require assistance in the event of a disaster.  Please click on:    Special Needs Registration 
for more information.  The Special Needs Registry should be considered for all people who have special medical needs (i.e. oxygen or life support systems that are dependent upon electrical power) or have disabilities that would make it difficult to independently follow public safety directions, such as evacuation, if the need arose.
