The Lassen County Sheriff’s Office is issuing all official evacuation warnings and orders, including the ones inside the City of Susanville. We apologize for any confusion that this may have caused.

Additionally, if you live in one of the zones under warning and have medical needs that require assistance evacuating, please call 530-260-6026. Please only use this number if you need assistance. This number is not a fire information number.


The threat of gusty winds and critical fire conditions has prompted the Susanville Police Department to release a statement this afternoon reminding residents to stay alert as the Dixie Fire burns to the southwest of the Honey Lake Valley.

“With the ever-changing conditions affecting the Dixie Fire, The Susanville Police and Fire Departments would like to remind the residents of Susanville to be alert and be ready to evacuate in the event that the Dixie Fire threatens the City of Susanville.”

Please check your zone on the map and be prepared if either an evacuation warning or order are issued.

“The City of Susanville is working to keep the residents safe and up to date on fire information. Currently the following zones may be impacted, SVL-E004 and SVL-E005. If you have medical needs that will require assistance evacuating, please call 530-260-6026 and leave a message. Your information will be placed on a list provided to first responders.”

The City of Susanville utilizes the CodeRED notification system and will notify residents if an evacuation warning or order takes place for your specific zone. Officers will also perform door to door notifications if an evacuation order is given. Click here to register with CodeRed.

“We encourage residents remain alert and prepared. Go to www.readyforwildfire.com for information about how to prepare your loved ones, animals and property for an evacuation. In these extreme conditions, every citizen should be prepared.”
