Do you know your zone?

Zonehaven recently went through some updates, which included some refinement and changes to zones throughout the county. Please visit https://community.zonehaven.com and type your address into the search bar to see which zone number you are!

This website will show you which zone you live in and what fire agency is in your jurisdiction. Knowing your Zone can also be helpful when looking up a public safety advisory and status updates.

During the CZU fire last year, zone numbers were used to announce evacuation status and repopulation – making it important to know before a critical incident occurs!
