Evacuation Tips

Oregon follows a 3-level evacuation notification system and it's important to know the current levels and what they mean to keep you and your family safe. Don't wait to evacuate if you feel unsafe.

Level 1: Be Ready

  • Prepare to evacuate and be aware of danger in the area
  • Have your emergency plan ready and plan possible evacuation routes
  • Make a go-kit and have it ready. In case you need to evacuate quickly, it's important to assemble a go-kit of essential supplies for your health, safety, and identification. Pack an easy-to-carry bag for each member of your household. Don't forget to pack for pets! Important things to include in a go-kit:
    • Food and water for each member of the household and pets
    • Personal items: toiletries, clothing, and comfort items for each member of the household and pets
    • Prescriptions: including medications, eyeglasses, and medical devices
    • ATM debit cards, credit cards, and cash
    • Identification materials and important documents: birth certificates, marriage licenses, social security cards, passports, banking records, etc.
    • Electronics: phones, computers, hard drives or disks, and chargers
    • Photos and important memorabilia

Level 2: Be Set

  • Be set to evacuate at a moment's notice
  • Follow your emergency plan and check news and radio for updates
  • Conditions change rapidly; leave if you feel unsafe

Level 3: Go Now!

  • Leave immediately, it is unsafe to stay
  • Do not stop to gather belongings or protect your home
  • Do not return until officials announce it is safe to do so
