In the event of an emergency requiring the evacuation of residents to a safer location, such as flooding or a release of hazardous materials, members of the public should listen carefully to the official notifications from their local Emergency Management officials.  Depending on where you live, those notifications might come by way of reverse call notification, radio and TV alerts, warning sirens, variable message signs, text message, Tweet or other social media, door-to-door notification, or some combination of the above.  If an evacuation order is issued, residents in the affected area should follow only the evacuation routes that are identified in that particular notice.  Although your community has identified multiple evacuation routes in advance, for any specific hazard event that might trigger an evacuation, only certain evacuation routes will be available and appropriate.
