Welcome to Ross Valley Fire Department | Emergencies: Dial 9-1-1
The Evacuation Route maps posted here are intended to be utilized by the fire and police department as a reference to determine what areas are to be notified in the event of an emergency. Each group is defined with a name. You do not need to remember the name of the group you live in.

The best evacuation route is usually the one you know best. Take the fastest route to the valley floor and town, away from the fire if possible. Under smoke and fire conditions, you may not even recognize your own street. Street signs may not be visible (or present). The route you know best is the one you'll be most likely to recognize under stress, and is usually the fastest way out of your neighborhood and to safety.
Please note: the primary and secondary evacuation routes identified on these maps are options for fire and law to consider when creating a notification. Based on the nature of the incident, if possible, evacuation routes will be identified and placed into the notification message.
