Evacuation Needs Assessment and Communication Strategies Study

The Tuolumne County Evacuation Needs Assessment and Communication Strategies study identifies locations and communities at higher risk from wildfire and strategies to improve evacuation roadway capacity and communication to improve the County’s wildfire resiliency and preparedness.

The study furthers the understanding of wildfire risk based on historic data to inform strategies or approaches for future evacuations and identifies opportunities for evacuation-related transportation improvements for the Tuolumne County Transportation Council Regional Transportation Plan. The study does not identify evacuation routes or zones and is not an evacuation plan.
