EVACUATING THE SUNRIVER COMMUNITY
Should you hear the emergency sirens, an evacuation is imminent. Be sure to monitor this website and other media sources for updates on the emergency.
Each incident is unique and may require different evacuation routes.
You may also be directed to a "green" safe zone such as a pasture or golf course or asked to "shelter in place."
You do not have to wait until an evacuation order is given to leave. It is up to you to decide what is best for you and your family... it is OK to GO EARLY!
There may not be enough time or resources to go
door-to-door to notify everyone
to evacuate. You are
ultimately responsible for making the
decisions for the
safety of yourself
and your family.
PLEASE FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS AND EVACUATION SIGNAGE
DO NOT ASSUME which exit route is open and safe for travel as you may be driving into the danger zone.
Law enforcement will designate the best and safest route(s) based on the type and direction of the threat.
EVACUATION EXITS IN SUNRIVER
A - Abbot Drive to South Century Drive east to Highway 97 or west to
South Century Drive or Spring River Road toward Mt. Bachelor
B – Cottonwood Road to Highway 97
Secondary Exit (Gated. Will be opened if necessary)
C – Meadow Road to Spring River Road toward Mt. Bachelor or to South Century Drive
and Highway 97. This exit is gated and only opened if needed.
If an evacuation order is given, tune your car radio to stations 1110AM, 100.1FM (KBND) or 101.7FM (KLRR) for emergency updates
Take only essential vehicles – the more vehicles, the more congestion on the road. Larger vehicles such as RVs and trailers clog evacuation routes and endanger everyone.
Once the evacuation order has been given, you will not be allowed back into Sunriver until it declared safe to do so by emergency personnel.
If you do nothing else, be sure to take your 5Ps during an evacuation
