Evacuation Warning versus Order

Do you know the difference between an Evacuation Warning and an Evacuation Order?

An Evacuation Warning means: Start taking action to be ready to evacuate. If you need extra time to evacuate (mobility issues, pets, large animals, etc.) start taking steps now to evacuate.

An Evacuation Order means: Leave immediately.

You do not need to wait for an evacuation warning or order to leave if you feel unsafe.
