Sutherland Canyon fires downgraded to Level 1

Sutherland Canyon fires downgraded to Level 1

All areas in central Grant County which were under Level 2 evacuation notice have been downgraded to Level 1.

This includes areas north and northeast of Quincy, and locations along Baird Springs Road and east to Sagebrush Flats, north to Road 20-NW and south to Monument Hill.

Level 1 evacuation notices are just an alert. There is no current danger to your home, family, or business, but the fire still may be moving toward you. Grant County authorities still remind you to gather the things you’ll need if you must evacuate and to refine those evacuation plans.

Residents with special needs, or those with pets or livestock, should make special preparations for relocating family members, pets, and livestock.

To prepare to evacuate, families should assemble the following emergency supplies:

— Clothing for your family for several days
— Bedding, pillows, and towels
— Prescription medicines & spare eyeglasses
— Soap and toiletries
— Baby food and diapers
— Your address book or list of important telephone numbers
— Your checkbook, credit/debit cards, and cash
— Your driver’s license and identification cards
— A portable radio and flashlight.

You should also:

— Gather suitcases, boxes, or bags to hold your emergency supplies.
— Be prepared to secure your home or office and your property before you depart.
— Ensure your car is in good shape and you have adequate fuel.
— Decide where you will go if you have to evacuate. Make arrangements with relatives or friends or consider making hotel or motel reservations.
