2020 “Area of Refuge” Evacuation Drill in Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows - September 12th, 4pm
Combined event – Sept 12th 4-5 PM Microsoft Teams Meeting Conference ID: 751 609 340# +1 213-279-1097 United States, Los Angeles (Toll)
While the primary plans for wildfire in our area call for complete evacuation via 89, this drill (as last year) will simulate the limited scenario of a wildfire closing Highway 89 in both directions. In such a scenario, existing fire plans employ the ski resort parking lots as “areas of refuge”.
THIS YEARS EVENT WILL BE VIRTUAL! SIMULATED evacuation orders will be sent thru Nixle and Nextdoor at 3:55PM. That will be the signal to log into the meeting.
Do not go to the parking lots. Please sign up for Placer Alert at https://www.placer.ca.gov/2426/Placer-Alert. This system will be used in case of a real emergency. Squaw Valley Fire, North Tahoe Fire, and SV and AM Firewise Committees will make brief presentations. Ron Cohen CEO of Squaw Valley|Alpine Meadows will wrap up with a Q&A on the upcoming ski season.
