NEVER drive through flooded roadways. STOP! Turn Around Don’t Drown. Vehicles can be swept away by less than two feet of water. The roadbed may be washed out. You can lose control of your vehicle in only a few inches of water. Do not drive around a barricade. You may face an expensive loss if the vehicle’s engine is damaged by water. Turn around and go another way!

Other tips – BEFORE A FLOOD TIPS

To prepare for a flood, you should:

  • Build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan. http://www.ready.gov/make-a-plan
  • Elevate the furnace, water heater and electric panel in your home if you live in an area that has a high flood risk.
  • Consider installing “check valves” to prevent flood water from backing up into the drains of your home.

We highly encourage residents to sign up with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Emergency Notification System to be notified during emergency situations at http://www.ycsoaz.gov/community/emergency-preparedness/ens/

It’s Too Late, When Told To Evacuate!
