Emergency Preparedness: Know Your Zone

Have you identified your zone in case of an emergency?

The City's new evacuation zone map now includes all-hazard evacuation zones throughout the entire City, which are easily broken down by neighborhood location. The map also features descriptions of each evacuation type. 

Residents are encouraged to review the map and become familiar with their zone now, before an emergency. For more information regarding emergency management, visit cityofirvine.org/em.
