Evacuation Drill


Lakewood Wildfire Evacuation Drill Complete

Thank you to everyone who participated in the October 20 full-scale evacuation exercise in the Lakewood community.  Thank you also to our partners:  the Walnut Creek Police Department, Contra Costa Fire, Community Warning System and Sheriff's Office, CALFIRE, and Walnut Creek CERT, who jointly coordinated the drill. The exercise was designed to test our ability to manage a large-scale evacuation.

We recognize this probably was an inconvenience for some, and hope you will understand what an incredible learning experience this was for our first-responders and the community. With the recent fires in our state, we have seen how important a well-practiced evacuation can be.
