City of Placerville - Emergency Preparedness

The CALDOR  Fire of 2021, in Grizzly Flats, has prompted the City of Placerville to provide the residents of Placerville the following map showing the Emergency Route Awareness for the City of Placerville, City of Placerville Wildfire/Disaster “READY, SET, GO” Evacuation Plan, Sgt.’s assigned to each zone and contact information, FEMA’s Emergency Supply List, and Pet Disaster Kit Checklist.

Map – Emergency Route Awareness of Placerville
City of Placerville Wildfire/Disaster “READY, SET, GO” Evacuation Plan
Emergency Contact Info for Route Awareness and Zone Map
FEMA – Emergency Supply List
Pet Disaster Kit Checklist

Please familiarize yourself with the Emergency Route Awareness Map in relation to your location or family member’s location. Make a plan sooner rather than later. Print out these resources for your personal Emergency Preparedness Binder. We have experienced how fast a wildfire can spread and evacuations become imminent. When you have a plan, and practice how you would evacuate, the stress level can be managed with the knowledge of how you would leave the area to safety.

Follow our social media for up-to-date information during an emergency. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Nextdoor, and Nixle. Other agencies to follow on social media would be the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department, El Dorado County Fire, and Cal Fire.

Organizational Chart 

Placerville Police Department strives to provide professional service to the community and partner with it to maintain a high quality of life. We use the latest police practices and guidelines to effectively serve the local community with active participation and outreach. in 2013 we implemented two very significant means of alerting our citizens by phone, text, and email from community events and advisories to high-level alerts through the use of the Placerville and County of El Dorado OES residential phone-based alert system known as  RAVE.  Additionally, we are incorporating technology with public safety through the use of mobile phone text and email-based   Nixle alert system for those within the city limits and outlying areas.  This adds yet another layer of safety, protection, and awareness to the community.
