download the flyer:
Hood River Sheriff's Office issues evacuation orders.
If you feel threatened by wildfire, do not wait for an official evacuation order.
Level 1 Evacuation means
for possible evacuation.
Residents should be aware of the danger that exists in their area, monitor emergency services websites and local media outlets for information. This is the time for preparation and precautionary movement of persons with special needs, mobile property, pets and livestock. If conditions worse, emergency services staff may contact you via CITIZEN ALERT notifications.
Level 2 Evacuation means
You should be ready to leave at a moment’s notice as this level indicates there is a significant danger to your area, and residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside of the affected area. Residents may have time to gather necessary items, but doing so is at their own risk.
Level 3 Evacuation means “GO!”
- evacuate NOW –
Danger to your area is current or imminent, and you should evacuate immediately. If you choose to ignore this advisement, you must understand that emergency services may not be available to assist you further. DO NOT delay leaving to gather any belongings or make efforts to protect your home. If you evacuate, take your GO KIT (emergency supplies,) lock your home, and choose a route away from the fire hazard. Watch for changes in fire and smoke.
Tell someone when you left and where you are going.
