Free Evacuation Tags for your home and property!
The Yuba County Sheriff’s Department, Yuba OES and Yuba Fire Safe Council have partnered to provide “EVACUATED” tags. Families should place these tags in a highly visible place such as a door, reflective address sign, mailbox, fence or gate as they leave during an incident.
These tags when placed properly can help first responders
Quickly Identify which homes have already been evacuated!
The purpose of the tags is to aid first-responders to quickly determine if a house has been evacuated. Ideally, these tags will allow the first-responders to make this determination from the road. By saving time at each house with a displayed tag, the evacuation can be carried out in a quicker and safer manner.
Remember…Seconds Saved Can Save Lives!
Get your free tags today found at a number of locations
throughout Yuba County.
Note: Evacuation areas will be closely monitored by first-responders, when an initial evacuation is completed and the area is accessible to Deputies, the tags location will be documented and removed.
