Evacuation Zones

Effective May 1st, the City of Healdsburg has updated its Evacuation Zones to the map below. This update is to consolidate the previous 41 zones to 13 zones. 

During this process, we also removed the letters from the end of the evacuation zones. Now, all evacuation zones will have the HE- designator at the beginning to signify the City of Healdsburg (versus the surrounding County zones) followed by a number, 1 through 13. The community will now only have to remember one number for their zone instead of, for example, having to remember if you are in zone, HE-17 a, b, c or d. 

Additionally, we changed the coloring of the evacuation zones based on community feedback to make them less colorful and changed the border lines to thick black lines instead of colored as well. This makes the map clearer and easier to read. 

The Healdsburg Evacuation Map is still an interactive map where you are able to click on zones to read their boundaries in both English and Spanish. Additionally, the map features an address lookup tool so community members can search their home or work address to determine which zone they are in. During an emergency, the map will be updated to show which zones are under an evacuation order or evacuation warning. 

You can look up your evacuation zone at either:

To Find your Zone on the Map:

  • Enter your address in the “Find Address or Place” field in the upper left corner of the screen.
  • The map will zoom to your address and show your address.
  • Click on your parcel/house to view evacuation zone.

Evacuation Routes

The map above highlights possible travel routes that residents can take during a natural disaster. However, please keep in mind that you should know several evacuation routes from your home in the event of an emergency.

When to Evacuate

Evacuation Warning: If you or a family member is elderly or has special needs, you may want to voluntarily evacuate when officials issue this precautionary notice. If you have livestock that needs to be transported, you should move them.

Evacuation Order: Leave the area immediately. If you remain, emergency personnel may not be able to help you.

If you feel unsafe, go ahead and leave the area, even if no evacuation advisory or notice has been issued. Do not rely on emergency personnel to tell you when you should leave your home in the event of an emergency.

Personal Vehicles for Evacuation

Gas stations may be closed during emergencies and unable to pump gas during power outages. So, make sure you have a full tank of gas if an evacuation seems likely. Always keep at least a half tank of gas in your vehicle in case of an unexpected need to evacuate. Plan to take one car per family to reduce congestion and delay. Make sure you have a portable emergency kit in the car.
