WHERE TO GO
SHELTER LOCATION(S) ANNOUNCED VIA LOCAL MEDIA OUTLETS
Should you hear the emergency sirens, an evacuation may be imminent. It is time to start monitoring all 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 time
or resources to go
door-to-door and notify everyone to evacuate.
You are ultimately
responsible for making
the decisions for the
safety of yourself
and your family.
Evacuation Levels: Ready... Set... GO!
LEVEL 1 Evacuation means “BE READY” for potential 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 and pets.
LEVEL 2 Evacuation means “BE SET” to evacuate. You should be ready to leave at a moment’s notice as this level indicates there is a significant danger to your area. 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 – leave immediately! 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 to gather belongings or to protect your home.
FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS AND EVACUATION SIGNAGE
DO NOT ASSUME an exit route is open and safe for travel as you may be driving into the danger zone.
Each of Sunriver's circles has a sign directing which way to Highway 97... law enforcement will
designate the safest route(s) based on the type and direction of the threat.
