The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is making plans to evacuate some areas should the Lime Gulch Fire grow in size and change direction. We’re making plans–and so should you.
While the Roxborough area is NOT under any kind of notice or order right now, we’d like you to consider what you might need and take with you should there be an actual evacuation.
- What medications would you need in a shelter? (You should have a three-day supply.)
- What phone numbers and contacts will help you? Do you have extra phone batteries and chargers?
- What will you do with your small and large animals? What will they eat? Do they need special food?
- How much extra water and food do you have on hand? Do you have extra cash on hand? Credit cards ready?
- Where will you go in case you’re evacuated? Do you know where the Douglas County shelter is? (see our map attached for details.) Do you know the quickest evacuation routes?
- Do you have a GO BAG ready? Does your car have gasoline? Are your insurance documents with you?
