Evacuation Traffic Control Plan
Building on Berkeley’s existing fire readiness and response efforts, the City will develop a robust wildfire evacuation traffic control plan for the Berkeley Hills. The City has made progress over the years – reducing its wildfire vulnerability through improved building codes, aggressive vegetation management, and fire training and response partnerships with area fire departments – and the plan will further focus on the area’s unique geography and transportation challenges, establishing evacuation zones, routes, and necessary staffing and communication protocols.
