Clarification regarding pre-evacuation status

Posted on June 15, 2018 at 10:50 AM by Julie Sutor

As of 10:45 a.m., Friday, June 15, the pre-evacuation order is still in effect for Mesa Cortina and Wildernest neighborhoods above Twenty Grand Road. Anyone who crosses into the pre-evacuation zone is receiving an emergency notification of the pre-evacuation on their phone. This message has been causing some confusion. To clarify, this is not a new pre-evacuation order. People who enter the zone are receiving notification about the existing pre-evacuation order that has been in place since 3 p.m., Thursday, June 14. We are working to turn off the notification to reduce the confusion it is causing.


Please note that as of 10:45 a.m. today, local and federal officials are meeting to discuss the current level of fire risk to the neighborhoods in the pre-evacuation zone. They will evaluate whether current conditions merit any change in pre-evacuation status. We will notify the public and the media about any changes.
