The City of Santa Rosa and County of Sonoma have begun allowing residents of some of the most fire damaged neighborhoods to return and visit their property. We have been mindful of how difficult this is for residents and have created information and materials so the return is safe and orderly. We understand you are anxious to return to your neighborhood, but for your safety and the protection of your home and personal property, entry is not allowed until mandatory evacuation orders have been lifted. We are working to make this happen as soon as it is safe.
Notices of lifted mandatory evacuations and allowable re-entry will be sent out via Nixle alerts. Sign up for Nixle alerts by texting your ZIP CODE to 888777 or sign up online Recent Nixle alerts can be viewed
To prepare for re-entry and returning home:
- Make sure you have ID (City of Santa Rosa residents ONLY). If you do not, visit the Local Assistance Center
- Returning safely to your property after evacuation
