Evacuation Levels and What They Mean
In cooperation with Spokane County Emergency Management, we wanted to pass along some information to avoid confusion in the event Evacuations are needed in our community.
Just remember, Ready, Set, Go, when it comes to Evacuation levels.
Level 1: Get READY to leave!
* Prepare to leave your current location
* Conditions could get worse due to the incident in your area
* Put your GO BAG by the door and include any important items you may need, such as phone numbers, medication, clothing, etc.
* Consider what your pets will need to evacuate
Level 2: Get SET to leave!
* You should be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice
* Dangerous conditions threaten your current location
* The incident may be limiting the emergency services’ ability to protect the area
* If you or anyone at your location needs extra time, you are strongly encouraged to leave now
* If you have pets and/or livestock, you are encouraged to leave now. If you need help evacuating them, please call 911
Level 3: GO, Leave immediately
* There is an immediate threat to your safety—you need to leave NOW
* Emergency services may not be able to assist you
* Remember to bring your pets with you
* If you have pets and/or livestock, and need help evacuating them, please call 911
* You will not be allowed to return until conditions are safe
