Questions About Evacuation Tags?

News Flash_City Logo

While evacuation tags are helpful in some communities, including rural areas where first responders may need to spend more time to reach rural residents, within the Santa Rosa city limits – a more densely populated community – evacuation tags are not utilized as part of the community evacuation strategy and the City of Santa Rosa is not distributing them to residents.

In an emergency requiring evacuation, public safety officials use multiple notification and warning systems to ensure evacuation notifications are delivered to residents.

The many layers of notification channels include Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), Emergency Alert System (EAS) SoCoAlert, All Hazards NOAA Weather Radios broadcasts, Hi/Lo Sirens on police and fire vehicles, local radio and television broadcasts, Nixle messages, and official City-operated social media accounts.  

First responders will also mobilize in neighborhoods during evacuations when conditions require it. However, you should never wait for a knock on your door to evacuate. Residents are urged to evacuate during an emergency if you feel unsafe OR if you receive an emergency alert with an evacuation order directed to your location.   The use of an outside agency’s evacuation tag in the City of Santa Rosa will not prevent a first responder from attempting to make contact or evacuate a residence.

Make sure you are signed up for the emergency alert systems that require subscription and understand how they are used for emergency communications. Visit srcity.org/KnowYourAlerts  for more information.
