Introduction to Know Your Zone

Know Your Zone can be used to share multi-tiered evacuation zones established to help residents evacuate when a hurricane or storm occurs.

It provides 24/7 access to an organization and the location-enabled search helps residents quickly find evacuation zone information. This transparent approach improves communication with the public and promotes efficient use of transportation and public safety resources. Know Your Zone is typically implemented by emergency management agencies that want to avoid unnecessary evacuation travel, reduce congestion on travelled ways and ease overcrowding at storm shelters.

The Know Your Zone solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you share evacuation zones and promote current evacuation instructions when an order is issued.
