STAGE 1-ALERT & WARNING

There is a high probability of the need for evacuation. Law Enforcement

personnel/representatives will attempt to make personal visits to each residence and business in the threatened area. Some residents, primarily those with special health needs or other concerns, should relocate during this stage of evacuation.



STAGE 2-REQUEST/ORDER AND SECURITY

Evacuation is necessary in order to protect the lives of area occupants and emergency

personnel responding to the incident. Law Enforcement personnel shall attempt to convey this

order/request to citizens door to door, however if this is not practical or possible this information may be delivered via a public address system from a patrol vehicle. Should the later method be employed the personnel will activate emergency lights and siren before and after the notification.
