MEDFORD, Ore. -- Emergency management officials are encouraging homeowners to get prepared in the event of a fire season evacuation. The different levels are meant to warn homeowners before they have to physically leave their home but depending on the condition of the wildfire, there might not be much time to prepare. 

In Oregon there are three levels of evacuation:

- Be Ready (Be prepared)
- Be Set (You must prepare to leave at a moment's notice)
- Go! (Leave Immediately!)

In Siskiyou County, Cal Fire officials follow a similar model with a few differences:

- Get Ready (Create defensible space around your home)
- Get Set (Prepare you home and family, assemble emergency supplies, create an action plan)
- Go! (Be ready to leave at a momen's notice. Homeowners are encouraged to leave earlier than that notice)

Emergency management officials warn that now is the time to get prepared. They encourage a go-bag, an action plan for your family and livestock, and creating a defensible space around your home. 

Evacuation notices will be give by emergency officials and sent out to emergency alert systems. To sign up for emergency alerts in Jackson and Josephine County use Citizen Alert. For Siskiyou County, use CodeRED.
