Windsor PD and the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office are giving away evacuation tags to residents living in Windsor and unincorporated Sonoma County. Evacuation tags are a new tool to help us more quickly ensure that neighborhoods are evacuated during a disaster. Residents tie the tag in a location that is highly visible when they evacuate. This saves time because first responders don’t have to tie their own ribbon on the property and they can immediately check the next home. We’ve learned that seconds can count during evacuations and we are excited to bring this new time-saving tool to our residents. Each tag comes with a bilingual instruction flyer, too.
Evacuation tags can be picked up at Sonoma County Fire District Station No. 3 on 8600 Windsor Road on Saturday on May 15th from 9am-1pm. Tags will also be available at the Windsor Police Department during regular business hours.
