In case of emergency, call 911. To assist emergency service personnel in locating you, make sure your street address is adequately displayed. Refer to the detailed information about residence signs.
All Yosemite West property owners are encouraged to sign up for two emergency notification and alert systems that deliver emergency, fire, evacuation, and other relevant safety information to residents in a timely manner: Nixle and Rapid Notify.
Nixle is a public-safety notification system operated by the Mariposa County Sheriff's office effective April 28, 2014 that replaces the now discontinued CodeRED alert. If you previously signed up for CodeRED, you need to sign up for Nixle.
Nixle delivers messages to registered users instantly via landline phone calls, cell phone calls, text message and/or email; you select what type of information you want to be notified about and how many ways you want to receive it.
To sign up, text 95389 to 888-777, go to the Nixle website or complete and return the Mariposa County Sheriff Office's Nixle - Emergency Notification System Registration by snail mail or fax.
Rapid Notify is a community alert system for rapid event notifications operated by Yosemite National Park.
The Mariposa County Event Information Line, 209-966-1133 and 888-966-1133, is designated to provide information to the public during emergencies and disasters. Intervals between these events are used to share information, in particular, safety and education related items, with the community. These messages are created and provided by the Mariposa County Health Department, Mariposa County Sheriff's Office, and the Mariposa County Fire Department. The number can still be called during power outages but you must own and have ready, a corded phone that plugs directly into a wall.

The Yosemite West Community Emergency Preparedness Plan was developed cooperatively by the National Park Service, Sierra National Forest and the Mariposa County Sheriff, Fire Chief and Office of Emergency Services, and approved in 2012. In the event that an emergency incident necessitates evacuation of the Yosemite West community, the plan provides guidance in three basic steps: preparation, notification, and the evacuation process.
The plan discusses what to do before disaster threatens. It explains the criteria for an Evacuation Alert or an Evacuation Order and what to do in response to one. The evacuation process is detailed including traffic control and security issues. An Evacuation Map (see below) for Yosemite West has arrows indicating the roads to be used by motorists. Everyone should keep this map readily accessible in their house. If you're trapped, the plan offers survival tips.
