For Immediate Release                                                                                                              
Lakeview, OR – Evacuations. Additional evacuation levels have been implemented in Lake County due  to increased activity on the Bootleg and Log Fires. Lake County utilized its emergency alert system  to notify residents in the affected areas by Wireless Emergency Alert, text, email, and phone. Law  enforcement agencies are also attempting to reach all affected residents, door-to-door.

Level 3 – GO NOW! From Mile Post 73 on Highway 31 south along Winter Ridge to Government Harvey Pass, then east to  the Highway 31 and Government Harvey junction, then back north to include both sides of Highway 31.  This area is south of the community of Summer Lake.

Level 2 – Be Set From Picture Rock Pass south along Winter Ridge to Mile Post 73 and east of the middle of Summer  Lake to Government Harvey Pass, then east of Slide Lake Trailhead to west of the Red House Road  junction with Highway 31, then back north including Summer Lake Flats and the Ana Subdivision.

These evacuations extend and/or change the currently implemented levels. The most effective method  for viewing current evacuation levels is by using the link to the interactive map below. Evacuation maps are also posted in and shared with community gathering places throughout the fire  evacuation areas by incident management team staff.
Highway closures may occur; residents should review road closures at ODOT’s tripcheck.com. 

Remember that:
•     Level 1 evacuation means “BE READY” for potential evacuation. Be aware of danger in  your area and monitor emergency services websites and media outlets for information. Prepare  yourself and belongings for evacuation and consider movement of persons with special needs, mobile  property and pets and livestock.
•     Level 2 evacuation means “BE SET” to evacuate. Be ready to leave at a moment’s  notice; there is a significant danger to your area. Residents may voluntarily relocate to a shelter  or with family/friends outside the affected area. You may have time to gather necessary items, but  doing so is at your own risk.
•     Level 3 evacuation means “GO NOW” – leave immediately! Danger is current or  imminent. If you choose to ignore this advisement, understand that emergency services may not be  able to assist you further. DO NOT delay to gather belongings or make efforts to protect your home.

Again, evacuation shelters are located at the following locations: the Daly Middle School  Auditorium (220 South H St.) in Lakeview, the Klamath County Fairgrounds in Klamath Falls, and La  Pine Middle School.
