Emergency Preparedness-Evacuation Safety

 

Here in the City of Mill Valley, we are the definition of a Wildland-Urban Interface.  Our homes and streets blanket the landscape from the bay, through the valley flats and deep into the wooded mountain ridges and drainages. With these scenic views, come the complex and limited routes of access. During a normal day, these routes are quite relaxing, yet in the case of emergencies, such as fires, floods or anything in between, they can add to the hazard. So how do you stay safe in the event of an evacuation? You need to Prepare.
