An advisory evacuation indicates that a fire has the potential to threaten an area in the near future. This gives residents time to remove their pets, livestock, large boats, RV's and any other personal effects in an orderly manner.
A mandatory evacuation is declared when a fire directly threatens a community and residents are placed in danger. You must leave the area immediately for you and your family's safety. Your continued presence places yourself and others in danger.
Please be advised that fire is unpredictable and the time frame between an advisory and a mandatory evacuation can change quickly.
