To protect yourself. Monitor water levels and climb to safety. Yes, leaving your house exposes you to the weather & elements, so dress accordingly.

Coal Creek Canyon Fire will be patrolling at first light. We will be checking how many people are in your party, and what needs you might have (medical, other.) The best plan of action might well be to remain in place, but if you want to try to get out, and we can get you out, we will.

Please  contact the rescue teams (but do NOT go close to the water in order to do this) and continue to contact 911 dispatch if you need.

Do NOT try to evacuate yourself across the water.
