The City of Healdsburg is partnering with Sonoma County’s Department of Emergency Management and local COPE groups on a full-scale evacuation exercise on Fitch Mountain on Saturday, June 5, from 8 - 11 AM. The purpose: to familiarize community members with local, designated evacuation routes; safely practice an evacuation on those routes; and use the County's SoCoAlert system to notify participating residents.
Residents in the Fitch Mountain area have been notified via mail and other channels on this evacuation drill, which will precede an evacuation exercise on June 19 for Camp Meeker/Occidental. The City will issue Nixle alerts on June 3 and June 5 to alert the entire Healdsburg community that the orderly vehicular procession to the Community Center -- which will serve as a temporary evacuation point -- is just an exercise, not the real thing.
If you are a Fitch Mountain resident, we encourage you to sign up and take part. Please go here to learn more and to register: www.socoemergency.org/2021drill.
