Truckee has the potential for a number of natural disasters. Wildland forest fire is clearly the No. 1 potential problem.
However, a variety of emergencies including wind storms, snow storms, extreme cold, flooding, earthquakes, hazardous waste spills, pandemic flu or act of terrorism might necessitate an emergency response. If an emergency suddenly occurred would you know what to do?
In order to ensure a safe response to a large scale emergency the Nevada County Office of Emergency Preparedness has published a Truckee Area evacuation guide. The guide provides valuable information on what to do before, during and after a major community emergency.
Guides are available in hard copy at the town of Truckee office l at 10183 Truckee Airport Road and through Truckee Fire. An online version is also available for download here.
