From Coconino County Emergency Management
The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office and Coconino County Emergency Management announce the creation of evacuation zones in Coconino County. In an effort to further enhance emergency messaging to the public, the evacuation zones focus on neighborhoods, communities, and residential areas throughout the county.
Using pre-identified zones, this project enhances the existing Ready, Set, Go Program and was developed with area partners to enhance pre-evacuations and evacuation messaging.
In the wake of the fast-moving 2022 fire season and the need for rapid evacuations, we have reviewed our procedures and have enhanced our process for delivering emergency messaging. It is essential for us to geographically identify the exact areas to be notified, and this new process will further enhance the overall efficiency of evacuations and re-entry.
