Since areas do remain on evacuation alert, residents or recreational users must be prepared in case the area receives a future evacuation order on short notice.

For rural properties that have been impacted by wildfire, residents should be aware there may be danger trees in wildfire affected areas. Home owners and private land owners are recommended to work with an insurance agency to have an assessment done by a qualified arborist on their private property.
