Emergency Managers Consider Wildfire Evacuation Procedures


The destructive fire seasons of recent years have focused attention anew on evacuation. Plans for getting people away from fires were not adequate in both Paradise and Redding last year.

Now emergency managers are reconsidering evacuation planning on both sides of the state line. Emergency Management leaders at all levels have some ideas about how to proceed, while the fire department in Redding and the American Red Cross have some hard-earned experience.

Reps from Red Cross, Douglas County Sheriff's Office, and the City of Redding visit.
