All Hazard Evacuation Map

This is Yuba City’s All-Hazard Evacuation Map(Download map), which is comprised of 35 sub-zones.  This evacuation map is based on lessons learned from other disasters, which allows first responders to isolate a single neighborhood and/or evacuee larger portions of the City in a safe and efficient manner.  Utilizing the Emergency Notification System (CodeRed Sign-up), citizens in these sub-zones may receive one of three types of emergency notifications:

    • Evacuation Warning      
      • Alerts people in an affected are of a potential threat to life and property.
      • Let’s people know that if they need additional time to evacuate, that they should consider leaving during this time.
      • Prepares people for potential Evacuation Order.
    • Evacuation Order (Mandatory)
      • Immediate movement of people out of the area
      • Staying risks the life of civilians and First Responders
      • This is a lawful order to leave now
      • The area is lawfully closed to public access
  • Shelter in Place
  • Advises people to stay secure at their current location by remaining in place as evacuation will cause a higher potential for loss of life.


Yuba City Fire may be involved in several types of public safety notifications based upon the complexity and/or severity of the Incident, which may include:

  • Chemical Spills and HazMat Incidents
  • Wildfire Events
  • Flooding or High-Water Events
  • Active Shooter Situations
  • Power Outages
  • Severe Weather

In addition, this evacuation map identifies four Community Relocation Centers.  These are not evacuation sites; however, these locations are capable of transitioning into an Evacuation Shelter and/or grouping evacuees in a safe location for a limited time.   These pre-established Community Relocation Centers allow First Responders to immediately evacuate citizens in a hazard zone without the delay of establishing a full evacuation site.
