In case of emergency, call 911. To assist emergency service personnel in locating you, make sure your street address is adequately displayed. Refer to the detailed information about residence signs.

Emergency Notification & Alerts Systems

All Yosemite West property owners are encouraged to sign up for two emergency notification and alert systems that deliver emergency, fire, evacuation, and other relevant safety information to residents in a timely manner: Nixle and Rapid Notify.

Mariposa County Event Information Line

The Mariposa County Event Information Line, 209-966-1133 and 888-966-1133, is designated to provide information to the public during emergencies and disasters. Intervals between these events are used to share information, in particular, safety and education related items, with the community. These messages are created and provided by the Mariposa County Health Department, Mariposa County Sheriff's Office, and the Mariposa County Fire Department. The number can still be called during power outages but you must own and have ready, a corded phone that plugs directly into a wall.

Yosemite West Evacuation Plan

The Yosemite West Community Emergency Preparedness Plan was developed cooperatively by the National Park Service, Sierra National Forest and the Mariposa County Sheriff, Fire Chief and Office of Emergency Services, and approved in 2012. In the event that an emergency incident necessitates evacuation of the Yosemite West community, the plan provides guidance in three basic steps: preparation, notification, and the evacuation process.

The plan discusses what to do before disaster threatens. It explains the criteria for an Evacuation Alert or an Evacuation Order and what to do in response to one. The evacuation process is detailed including traffic control and security issues. An Evacuation Map (see below) for Yosemite West has arrows indicating the roads to be used by motorists. Everyone should keep this map readily accessible in their house. If you're trapped, the plan offers survival tips.
