[ARCHIVED] Peninsula Cities Launch ‘Know Your Zone’ Website

Plan. Prepare. Evacuate. Palos Verdes Peninsula Emergency Readiness. Visit

On May 8, 2023, the four cities of the Palos Verdes Peninsula launched the Know Your Zone evacuation readiness website With the aim to prepare Peninsula residents and businesses to evacuate in the event of an emergency, the site houses Zonehaven, a cloud-based evacuation platform with pre-established, Peninsula-wide evacuation zone maps. The zones will also help fire, police and other emergency service agencies prepare for emergencies, streamline the evacuation process, and reduce confusion by enabling a single verified source of emergency information.

The Know Your Zone website is a collaboration between the cities of Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, their public safety partners, the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Services and Genasys-owned evacuation management software platform Zonehaven.

Residents, visitors, businesses, and school communities on the Peninsula should go to to find their evacuation zone, save it in their smartphone, or write it down and keep it somewhere that’s easy to find in an emergency, such as on their refrigerator or near the front door.

During an emergency, such as a wildfire or flood, the website and corresponding alerts will show which zones are under evacuation the moment an order is issued by authorities.  

The four Peninsula cities, in partnership with the L.A. County Fire Department, Sheriff’s Department, and Palos Verdes Estates Police Department, encourage the entire community to Know Your Zone and get familiar with In addition to home addresses, residents should know the zones of places they frequent, such as work, school, places of worship, or the homes of family and friends.
