Living in a forested area means understanding the potential risk of a wildfire. The documents on this page can help prepare the residents of White Mountain Vacation Village if wildfire comes to or close to the Village.
It is the responsibility of each Homeowner in WMVV, and their visitors or renters, to be familiar with the emergency evacuation plan created by the Risk Assessment Committee (RAC) of WMVV. Every resident and/or visitor and is encouraged to participate in the Ready, Set, Go program of Navajo County. In no way does the WMVV Board of Directors or the RAC of WMVV hold any responsibility for the evacuation of any persons, pet, or possession/property of an owner/resident or their guest(s) whether on the owner/resident’s property or anywhere on within the WMVV property.
To be properly prepared for an emergency:
Sign up for the Navajo County Emergency Notification System-Ready! Set! Go!
This system enables Navajo County to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, such as severe weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons and evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods.
It is your responsibility to know the fire restrictions in and around the Show Low area.
Be aware of the WMVV Evacuation Plan
Become familiar with all exits locations in the Village and remember you can use the exit closest to you, if available, as the main exit may not be accessible In addition to the main entrance, there are other exits with “crash gates”. See the evacuation map below.
Crash gates are designed to be driven through with minimal vehicle damage.
RVers that will be removing their rig should do so during the “Set” period set by Navajo County.
RVers should also use the main exit, if accessible.
Here are some links to documents that you can read to better understand the risks and actions you need to consider in living in a forested area.
