Know Your Zone

In the fall of 2020, Butte County Sheriff's Office Emergency Managers began working with CAL FIRE, Butte County Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Butte County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, creating Evacuation Zones for all of Butte County. These zones will be used during a fire or other emergency requiring evacuations in our county. It is important to remember the last three numbers of the zone, as every zone has a different number and no two are the same. For example, fire station 55 in Bangor is located at 7540 Oro-Bangor Highway. The zone is: BUT-BR-924. The BUT stands for Butte, the BR stands for Bangor and 924 is the zone number.

Thank you for supporting firefighters and their families.

For information on evacuations please visit the Butte County Office of Emergency Management Evacuation Information website.
