What should I do if I smell smoke?


1.   Check the Nevada County Dashboard to see if a fire is being monitored. Make sure this link has been used on your device.  It’s easily searched using the keyword, ‘dashboard’ at  https://nevcounty.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=dfae8e3b36e3455bbf9dcc865349e72e

2.  Check Yuba Net. A local website that provides the county with the most up to date information on a variety of topics.

3.    Is there is a haze of smoke all over or is it coming from a specific direction? 

a.    If it’s hazy all over and the dashboard shows no fire, check the air quality conditions on the dashboard. 

b.    If it’s coming from nearby or very close to your home and you see flames, call 911. Also call 911 first, not Lake Wildwood Security. Can you determine if it’s a structure fire or a vegetation fire? Let 911 know.

c.    If it’s coming from nearby and you see or hear fire engines coming, do not call security or 911 unless it presents an immediate danger to you or your home.  Be aware of first responders and cooperate with their instructions.
