Be Prepared for a Flood

Due to wildfire activity, a heightened potential flood risk is anticipated in impacted areas. The Coconino County Flood Control District is working in conjunction with Coconino National Forest and other partners to analyze new impacts to flood risk due to the Pipeline Fire. For additional information and recommendations please see our links below. Also, sign up for emergency alerts at https://coconino.az.gov/2612/Emergency-Notification-System and remember to be in READY status for potential emergencies.
  • Protect your property from floodwaters and purchase flood insurance. 
  • Plan for sheltering where you are and for evacuation. 
  • Evacuate if advised. 
  • Seek high ground (flash floods) or stay on high ground. 
  • Avoid walking or driving in floodwaters. 
  • Depth and velocity are not always obvious; the ground or road may suddenly wash away and hidden dangers may exist; do not attempt to evacuate through flood waters. 
  • Know how to avoid injury from debris, contaminated water, carbon monoxide poisoning, electrocution, and damaged buildings and infrastructure. 
  • Seek professional review or inspection of structures and utilities before entering buildings that have been flooded.

Floodwater Dangers While Driving

Due to wildfire activity, a heightened potential flood risk is anticipated in impacted areas. The Coconino County Flood Control District is working in conjunction with Coconino National Forest and other partners to analyze new impacts to flood risk due to the Pipeline Fire.

  •  Do not attempt to cross floodwaters. The depth of the water is not always obvious. Moving water has tremendous power. Six inches of moving water has the potential to knock you off your feet, and a foot of water can sweep a vehicle—even a large SUV—off of the road.  
  • If your vehicle is trapped in rapidly moving water, stay in the vehicle. 
  • If water is moving at a high velocity and is rapidly rising in the vehicle, exit the vehicle immediately, seek refuge on the roof of the vehicle, and signal for help.  
  • If your vehicle stalls, leave it immediately (unless water is moving at a high velocity) and move to higher ground. Rapidly rising water can engulf the vehicle and its occupants, sweeping them away.
