Know Your Zone: Evacuation Preparedness Starts Here
Evacuations, shelter in place, and other emergency orders may be necessary to protect residents during wildfire, flooding, and other emergencies.
As part of our evacuation plan, the entire county has been divided into individual evacuation zones. Pre-established evacuation zones help first responders and emergency service agencies prepare before an emergency strikes and helps streamline the evacuation process to reduce confusion and help residents evacuate quickly.
The Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority, Marin County fire agencies, law enforcement agencies, and the county Office of Emergency Services, are improving how evacuation, shelter in place and other emergency orders are issued. Marin County is using a we based tool called Zonehaven, to help communicate, organize, and manage evacuations. This stool is used by dozens of counties in California and the Bay Area, including our neighbors in Sonoma, Napa, Lake, San Mateo, Alameda, and Santa Clara.
