Official evacuation zone maps in Sonoma County were unveiled Friday to help residents be prepared for an emergency that may require them to leave their homes.
The county said previous evacuation zones were different for each incident. Officials said evacuation zones will now remain the same moving forward and residents are urged to learn their route and be ready when an evacuation order is issued.
View the evacuation map below. For more information, visit the Sonoma County Emergency and Preparedness Information page.
The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office is also giving away evacuation tags to residents in unincorporated Sonoma County and its contract cities, Sonoma and Windsor. Residents will use the tag by placing it in a location most visible to first responders -- examples are a gate, mailbox or front door.
More information on evacuation tags, including photos of how to display them, is available at sonomasheriff.org/evac.
