Doce Wildfire Evacuations - video and update

This video is courtesy of The Daily Courier - it describes the areas planned for evacuation and the emergency relief efforts by the American Red Cross - Grand Canyon Chapter for evacuees of the Doce Fire. Per the American Red Cross: "Red Cross volunteers have set up cots and blankets for overnight stays, and evacuated residents can come to the shelter for meals, snacks, water and coffee. Evacuated residents also can receive aid from Red Cross nurses and mental health volunteers."

A press release from the U.S. Forest Service about the Doce Fire explains that the fire is still 0% contained and that the Southwest Area Type I Incident Management Team led by Tony Sciacca will be taking over management of the fire today.

Residents in Williamson Valley and possibly Chino Valley have been put on notice that evacuations may be needed in their areas. So far there have been no reported injuries or structures lost. 

The Industrious Hygienist will be following the progress of the fire via the Yavapai County Emergency Management - Regional Alert website

Residents of the Prescott area can sign up to receive notification information for this and future regional alerts from the Yavapai County Sheriff�s Office.  Messages can be received by phone, text or email. Click here to learn more and sign up for the Emergency Notification System.
