About this Event

Seminar 9-9:45 am at Tolt Middle School

The Tolt Dam is located on the South Fork of the Tolt River 16 miles upstream from the City of Carnation. Potential flooding from a failure of the dam could inundate the city of Carnation and surrounding areas in approximately one hour and ten minutes. In the event of a catastrophic dam failure, the City of Carnation has developed an evacuation plan that includes a 20 acre pedestrian-only evacuation site in the Tolt Highlands via two walking access routes. Citizens may also opt to drive any number of routes out of the area to high ground. Residents will learn about alerting systems, escape routes, how long they have until inundation and also where these pedestrian-only routes are located.

Hike to the Site! 10-11:00 am:

Immediately after the seminar residents will be encouraged to practice walking the evacuation route guided by community volunteers. Starting from Tolt Middle School residents will head to the site via one of two routes. A free commemorative t-shirt will be given to registered participants who complete the hike to the site.

Safety Fair 11-1:00 PM

At the evacuation site there will be a safety fair hosted by the City of Carnation where residents can purchase lunch from participating food trucks, meet with preparedness vendors and learn more from community stakeholders and local response agencies.

Representatives from City of Carnation, Carnation Duvall Citizen Corps, King County Emergency Management, King County Sheriff, Eastside Fire and Rescue, Riverview School District, Seattle Public Utility (Dam owner), E911, and American Red Cross will be available to answer questions and assist residents in creating a plan.
