Atlas Fire - Fairfield Update: Eastridge neighborhood downgraded to Advisory Status. Residents may return home

Atlas Fire Update for City of Fairfield Residents
10/12/17 6:45 pm

The following is an update on the Atlas Fire Voluntary Evacuation status of the Eastridge neighborhood in Fairfield, CA. There has been no change in the fire status within Fairfield city limits. The fire is outside of the city limits.

The Voluntary Evacuation of the Eastridge neighborhood has been DOWNGRADED to an ADVISORY, and evacuation is no longer recommended. Residents may return to their Eastridge neighborhood as soon as they want. Returning residents are still encouraged to be prepared to evacuate on a short notice if fire conditions change.
Since Green Valley Road north of Eastridge is still closed to accommodate firefighters and equipment, residents should approach the neighborhood using northbound Green Valley Road (from the I-80 area.)

To clarify, an ADVISORY is not an evacuation order. It is a notice that residents should begin to prepare to evacuate should the need arise. We are suggesting that residents who live in the parts of the communities under Advisory, pack necessary items such as medication, clothing, and any other items they would want to leave with so they can leave if the need arises.

A map of the areas of the city of Fairfield that are currently under ADVISORY notification has been attached. For information regarding areas within unincorporated Solano County under evacuation notice, please visit the Solano County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

Other terms to be familiar with:
Mandatory Evacuation: This is a warning to persons within the designated area that an imminent threat to life and property exists and individuals MUST evacuate in accordance with the instructions of local officials.
