When mandatory evacuation orders are given, you must not assume that all evacuation routes are available to travel. Public Safety Officials, such as law enforcement and fire department personnel, will advise (by way of a notice or alert) all members of the public of a mandatory evacuation. The notice or alert will be followed with instructions that identify the safest evacuation routes to travel.
Since the Northstar community has a looped road system with three options for evacuating traffic to Highway 267, residents and members of the public will be directed to use one of the following routes:
Once you reach Highway 267, residents and members of the public will be directed toward Kings Beach or Truckee by law enforcement. Click here for an evacuation map of Northstar. Evacuation Map
Public Safety Officials are aware that there are other roads residents and members of the public can travel to get from one street to another or even use to exit the District. However, these routes are not designated as major evacuation routes. Therefore, Public Safety Officials will only make these routes known and available to travel if and when they are necessary during a mandatory evacuation. Public Safety Officials are also aware of various locations that people can flee to as a last resort if they cannot exit the District. These locations will only be announced if and when they are needed during a mandatory evacuation. All residents and members of the public must immediately heed the instructions given to provide adequate time to safely evacuation. DO NOT DELAY.
