Newsome Evacuation Level Downgraded to Level 2

Due to decreased fire behavior on the Baldy Fire from rain last night and today, the level of evacuation has been recommended to be downgraded from Level 3 to Level 2 for the Newsome Area near Elk City. 

Elk City remains under a Level 2 evacuation.

A level 2 evacuation means there is a high probability of a need to evacuate. 
  • You should prepare now by packing necessary items and preparing your family, pets, and vehicle for potential departure. Remember the 6- P's: 
1. A plan for the persons in your family (including a meeting place.) 
2. Personal items (including toiletries, food and water for 2-3 days and special personal possessions.) 
3. Prescriptions- Have your full, current supply of prescriptions packed. 4. Photographs (and other mementos) which cannot be replaced.
5. Pets (Have a plan in place and pets secured so frightened pets don't escape fenced yards or kennels.) 
6. Papers- Pack all important papers, including reference phone numbers, account numbers, etc. 
  • Now is the time to move persons with mobility or medical issues. 
  • If you have livestock or large animals, please move them to a safe place now! 
  • Please use common sense and evacuate at any time you feel uncomfortable or see active fire behavior.
