Be Prepared to Evacuate

Many areas of San Joaquin County are protected from floods by large levees or dikes that surround local neighborhoods. If you live in one of these areas you should be prepared to evacuate your home in the unlikely event that a problem develops with your neighborhood levee and officials feel you should leave for your own safety.

Local fire and law officials have divided city neighborhoods into evacuation "zones"" to help conduct emergency evacuations in an orderly manner. Officials have identified in each zone the streets that residents should use to leave as well as locations in the neighborhood where they can obtain assistance if they cannot leave quickly on their own.

You should also review the following additional safety information with your family.

  • Listen to KFBK 1530 AM and 93.1 FM for initial warnings for your neighborhood
  • Listen to other emergency radio frequencies for evacuation instructions when directed (see map)
  • If forced to shelter in a building due to floodwaters, make sure you can access the roof
  • Have a bright cloth or flashlight with you at all times to use to signal rescuers if necessary
  • Do not drive through flooded areas. Standing water is often deeper than it looks
  • Have a plan where your family will meet if separated
