1. Evacuation Advisory: This is a precautionary notice designed to give residents time to prepare for a possible evacuation. If you have special needs you might want to leave the area until the threat is passed. If you have livestock that needs transporting, you should move them.
2. Voluntary Evacuation: You are strongly urged to leave the area. If you choose to remain, you should be prepared to take action immediately if the danger approaches.
3. Mandatory Evacuation: You are in jeopardy and should leave the area immediately. If you choose to remain, you may be on your own as emergency personnel likely will not be able to help you.
The City of Napa wants our residents to be informed, safe and prepared. Here is what you can do:
UPDATED 4:00PM, Wednesday, 10/11
The air quality is obviously poor and a concern for many people. Wearing an N95 mask is recommended.
If you can see, taste, or feel smoke, you should immediately minimize outdoor activities. This is especially important if you have health concerns, are elderly, are pregnant, or have a child in your care.
Smoke from wildfires and structure fires contain harmful chemicals that can affect your health. Smoke can cause eye and throat irritation, coughing, and difficulty breathing. Learn more here.
Water supply for the of the City is intact, drinkable and available.
There is a precautionary water boil notice in place for the already-evacuated Silverado Country Club area. Here is a map of the area.
The City of Napa is issuing a boil water notice for customers who live on:
Old Coach Road
Or live in any area North of Hagen Road and east of the Silverado Trail
This includes all of the Silverado Country Club, Monticello Park and Vichy Ave Areas.
To be as prepared as possible, it is advised that you keep your vehicle with a half a tank of fuel at all times. It can't hurt to be ready in case you need to make a drive. If you are out of town, please fuel up outside of Napa.
PG&E is working to get power restored where they can. Thousands remain without power and PG&E can only address areas where there is now fire danger to their crews or infrastructure.

Your water system is a $480,000,000 network of treatment plants, tanks, pump stations, fire hydrants, meters, and other facilities that provide you access to safe, reliable, and life sustaining water every second of every day. Your bi-monthly bill pays for this 24-hour service.
