A pre-evacuation notice means you should prepare critical items to take with you in case you are actually told to leave the area. Those items might include money, credit cards, medications, cell phones and chargers.
Please monitor local news channels for fire updates. If the fire comes dangerously close to your area, an evacuation order will be sent. However, residents must maintain situational awareness. If you are in danger, DO NOT WAIT for an evacuation order. Take the initiative to leave immediately if local conditions warrant such action.
Please refrain from calling 9-1-1 unless you have an actual emergency. When new information becomes available, we will post it on the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office website, www.dcsheriff.net, on our Facebook page and on the Douglas County website.
This is a pre-evacuation warning.
