Reentry into Burned Areas
Once it is safe for you to return to your property, it is important that you closely follow reentry protocols. For destroyed properties or those that are substantially burned, this includes following the latest Health Order that requires use of personal protective equipment, such as gloves and masks, and that prohibits residents from starting cleanup before receiving permission from the County of Sonoma's Department of Health Services.
Upon returning to your property you will see one of three different tags posted by the City of Santa Rosa’s Building Department – a Green Tag, a Yellow Tag, or a Red Tag. Depending on how your property is tagged, it will determine if it is habitable or not.
Houses that do not have a tag were NOT inspected and are assumed to be safe, due to no surrounding damaged structures or vegetation. Vegetation may have burned up to the building and did not appear to have caused damage. If damage is suspected or discovered, please follow the guidance available below in the section titled "Steps to Perform a Full Assessment and Necessary Repairs" or download the guidance HERE.
Those tags include:
Safe for Occupancy
Habitable, Repairs Necessary
Do Not Enter / Limited Entry
