COMMUNITY EVACUATION MAPS
Some communities in Riverside County feature characteristics such as unique topography or limited evacuation routes. In some of these communities Public Safety officials utilize zones to alert residents of emergencies and to conduct evacuations. By knowing your zone you will be able to quickly react when evacuations are called for. These zones may be used for a number of emergencies but are primerily used for fires and storms/flooding. Zones may be subdivided depending on the emergency and conditions to lessen the impacts on a community so that only those in danger are evacuated or notified.

When dangerous conditions approach, these risk maps will show areas under evacuation warnings and orders:
During evacuation warnings and orders, you should leave immediately and seek shelter outside all evacuation zones.
If you are told to evacuate but you stay, you are risking your life. If you do not evacuate when evacuations are called for you could be isolated and trapped without help for many days, with roads impassible and utilities disrupted or destroyed.
- BLUE areas of the map indicate areas that are at risk for flooding, mud and debris flows. Impacts to these areas may include roads that may become impassible and deadly, as well as disrupted or destroyed utilities.
- YELLOW means a zone is currently under evacuation warning -- you SHOULD GO NOW as this is the safest time to evacuate.
- RED means a zone is currently under an evacuation order -- you MUST GO NOW. Your life is in immediate danger.
