Butte evac zones

Wildfire and other emergency evacuation zones for the county released

Sheriff Kory Honea at March press conference.

Last month, Sheriff Kory Honea announced the completion of a new evacuation map for Butte County.

According to the Butte County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office (BSCO) press release, in fall of 2020, the Sheriff partnered with Cal Fire, Butte County Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and BSCO Search and Rescue to map out wildfire evacuation zones for the entire county. The map created by the county GIS is now accessible via the Sheriff/Coroner website. Residents can search their address to find the number for their evacuation zone.

During an emergency, the online map will go live and the zones under an evacuation warning will appear in yellow while those under an evacuation order will be red.
