A new wildfire evacuation plan for Paradise and Magalia is coming to a mailbox near you. The pamphlets are being sent to more than twenty one thousand homes.
That mailer reminds us what's important when it comes to being prepared. The Humboldt fire in 2008 inspired upgrades for the existing evacuation plan. The blaze that burned nearly twenty three thousand acres and destroyed eighty seven homes showed us there were a lot of lessons to learn about evacuations.
The distribution of the "ready, set, go" evacuation plan was made possible thanks to funding from PG&E 21,000 plans will be sent out to residents in the area.
The plan includes a map of the new evacuation zones with designated assembly points so residents understand where they live in relation to how the evacuation would proceed.
The plan also comes with an evacuation checklist .
