The organized and temporary removal of people from an area deemed to be at risk due to an imminent or ongoing threat, such as a natural disaster, hazardous materials release, or a wildfire. During a wildfire event, evacuations may be ordered by local authorities, emergency management agencies, or the incident commander overseeing firefighting efforts. The primary goal of an evacuation is to ensure the safety of residents and minimize the potential for loss of life and property. In legal disputes related to wildfires, such as the Calf Canyon/Hermit’s Peak Fire, issues may arise concerning the timeliness and effectiveness of evacuation orders, communication with affected communities, and the responsibility of various parties to provide support and compensation for damages and losses experienced during the evacuation process.
