Voluntary Evacuation

TCEP’s mission is to gather, verify, and push out real time information to the public. We are not first responders and we do not perform medical, rescue, or safety-related tasks. In response to disasters or emergency events, TCEP volunteers activate and take on pre-assigned communications roles.

When a wildfire is nearby, authorities may issue an Evacuation Warning for specific Zones. You should immediately prepare to leave the Canyon. Put your Family Emergency Plan into action. Gather your personal belongings as shown on your Evacuation Lists and monitor your communications channels to determine what to do next.

To be extra safe, consider leaving during the voluntary period. You may avoid gridlock on the narrow Topanga roads if you leave earlier rather than later. This is also the time to evacuate horses and people in need of special assistance.

Even though an Evacuation Warning is considered voluntary, most Evacuation Warnings become Evacuation Orders, which are mandatory evacuations.
