Know Your Zone for Hurricane Preparedness
On June 1, 2017, the Commonwealth of Virginia unveiled new hurricane evacuation zones for coastal Virginia designed to enhance current evacuation plans, boost public safety, and improve travel efficiency in the event of hurricanes or other disasters.
The zones allow emergency managers to communicate with citizens who are most at risk as a storm approaches. Don’t wait until it’s too late: #KnowYourZoneVA today.
The new evacuation zones can be viewed at www.KnowYourZoneVA.org.
The Virginia Department of Emergency Management created the Ready Virginia app to make it easier than ever to be prepared for emergencies. The free app for iPhone® and Android™ devices provides robust emergency planning and instant notification of weather hazards.
