OCP&R has created this recommended Evacuation Guidelines flyer. Please note that these are guidelines only and not absolute rules. You will need to make your best decisions and take your safest actions when the event actually occurs. You may want to print this flyer and keep it handy.
This new guide by Dr. Robert Sieben, “The Changing Paradigm of Wildfire Prevention”, provides critical information on preventing home fires and wildfires.
Now is the time to organize your neighborhood so that neighbors can better help each other during Shelter-in-Place restrictions! Tips for organizing (or re-organizing) your neighborhood during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic are available in this guide.
