Pima County Announces New Set Notification, Sunday, June 28, 06:20PM

⚠️Set - Notification⚠️

This is a combined message from the Pima County Office of Emergency Management and the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.

If you are receiving this, know there is significant danger in the below area from the Bighorn Fire. Ready, Set, Go is the state’s evacuation alert system. The three steps encourage Arizonans to get READY by preparing now for what threatens their community, to be SET by maintaining awareness of significant danger, and to GO, to evacuate immediately when the danger is current and life-threatening.

As part of the Evacuation Process, the southern Catalinas area around Redington Road, bounded by the forest service boundary on the west and by the county line on the east is now in the "SET - Be Alert" stage. The northern and southern boundaries do not follow any specific road. Please refer to the interactive map at http://bit.ly/PCBigHornFire for specific details. If you are in this area, you are in the SET area.

Residents should consider voluntarily relocating outside the affected area with family/friends. Residents should avoid close contact with those who are sick and should practice public health recommendations when relocating. Grab your emergency go kit. Keep in mind unique needs for your family or special equipment for pets and livestock.

Stay aware of the latest news and information from public safety and public health officials.

This might be the only notice you receive. Emergency services cannot guarantee they will be able to notify everyone if conditions rapidly deteriorate. Be SET to GO.

Questions from residents in the area should be directed to 351-FIRE (3473)
