Do you know in which sector you live or where your Command Center is located in the event of an emergency evacuation? Where would you take your horse or look for him if he were evacuated by someone else?
Washoe County has 7 Sectors (5 are in the Reno, Sparks, Washoe Valley areas) and 7 Livestock Shelters:
- Reno Livestock Event Center, Bartley Ranch Park – Sectors 1 & 3
- Lemmon Valley Horseman’s Arena, Lazy 5 Regional Park, Gandolfo Rodeo Arena – Sector 2
- Hidden Valley Regional Park – Sector 4
- Washoe Lake State Park – Sector 5
Preparation is the key to a successful evacuation. Not only do you need a plan for you and your family, but you need one for your pets and livestock. Don’t wait until disaster strikes. Take the first step toward being prepared – know where to go.
Something else you can do now is to sign up for the Regional Notification System to receive alerts from Washoe County. This will let you receive alerts quickly by text message even if you’re not at home.
