Do I have to evacuate if an evacuation order is issued for my area?
Evacuation orders are issued to protect residents from hazardous situations that may affect their area during an emergency. While you cannot legally be forced to leave your home, understand that you likely will be unable to depend on emergency crews such as police and fire rescue to assist you during a life-threatening situation. Conditions outside may not allow emergency units to assist you. So it is strongly recommended that you heed an evacuation order, if given.
