Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
EOC is Activated
Emergency response agencies throughout Sonoma County continue fighting numerous fires throughout the county, and mandatory evacuations are ongoing. The Valley of the Moon Children’s Home and Los Guilicos Juvenile Detention Center, both in Sonoma Valley, have been evacuated, as have Sutter Hospital and Kaiser Hospital in Santa Rosa.
Evacuations have been ordered in a number of areas. It is critical that residents comply with law enforcement when they are told to evacuate. Information on evacuations will be shared on the Sonoma County Facebook page and the Sheriff’s Office Nixle as it becomes available.
The County of Sonoma’s Community Information and Recovery Resources page offers current news and maps, evacuation and shelter updates and information to help you recover from the fire disaster: applying for disaster aid, health concerns, returning to burn areas, housing and financial assistance and other important resources for residents and businesses affected by the fires.
