The Belvedere Police Department, in partnership with other Marin law enforcement and fire agencies, is giving away evacuation tags to Belvedere residents. These tags are a new tool to help us more quickly ensure that neighborhoods are evacuated during a disaster. During an emergency, residents should display the tag in a location that is highly visible when they evacuate their homes, such as at a mailbox, the front door, garage door, or end of the driveway.
A visibly displayed evacuation tag will help first responders quickly identity which homes have been evacuated so they can focus their attentions on those who still need help. We have learned that seconds can count during evacuations, and we are excited to bring this new time-saving tool to our residents.
Residents can pick up their tags at the Belvedere Police Department. If you need assistance picking up your tag, please contact the Belvedere Police Department at (415) 435-3266. When you receive your evacuation tag, be sure to keep it near your front door or on your emergency preparedness "go bag."
