The City of Sonora and Pacific Gas & Electric Company would like to remind our community that evacuating from your home early could mean the difference of life or death. When a wildfire or other disaster strikes, be prepared to leave in a moment’s notice. Having a 5-Minute Plan with an escape route can get you and your family out safe. Don’t wait to be told to evacuate, leave before the fires get to close.
Your 5-Minute Plan should include:
- Having an established meeting place.
- A packed emergency kit with essentials like medicine, important documents, clothes, food and water.
- Watch for weather reports and Red Flag Warnings.
- If you need to leave, take your emergency bags and gather your family and pets.
- Most important, don’t wait for the evacuation order!
