Three very important resources for evacuees:

  1. TripCheck.com has a current map of highway closures and delays. https://www.tripcheck.com
  2. InciWeb has details on each large fire, contact information for the fire and the latest evacuation/closure information. https://inciweb.nwcg.gov
  3. Red Cross Cascades Region can provide shelter information and resources for evacuees and people trying to connect with loved ones. https://www.redcross.org/local/oregon.html

 

Cell Phone Notifications

If you have a cell phone, consider verifying that you have “emergency notifications” enabled.

On an iPhone, this is in “Settings–> Notifications” (scroll all the way to the bottom).
Emergency alerts will come through even if your phone is on “do not disturb” mode. It works by sending an alert to all phones in the range of a given cell tower, no need to share your location data.
