NOTE: CodeRED emergency alerts will not be sent for every fire in Nevada County. They are used when a fire is deemed a serious potential threat to life and property (WARNING) or an immediate threat to life (ORDER). The Nevada County Sheriff’s Office is charged with carrying out evacuations countywide. During an active incident, they are in close communication with fire personnel who are on scene. Many factors are considered when determining whether an evacuation WARNING or ORDER is issued such as the size of the fire, rate of spread, number of available suppression resources, wind, temperature, topography, and proximity to residences.
