Know Your Zone

Woodland has six different evacuation zones.  What is your zone number?

An evacuation zone is a pre-defined area  that First Responders have designed.  

Neighborhoods within a zone:

  • Can be connected by the same evacuation route
  • Are usually affected by the same hazards
  • Can work together for "residents helping resident" when an evacuation is called

These pre-defined zones will allow for more rapid communication from the field to affected community members during an emergency event. 

 Visit: evacuate.yolocounty.org to find your zone, evacuation routes, and rally points.
