ACCERT has downgraded to an ALERT status following a short deployment to the Old Fire near Napa. Current fire conditions and rapid growth of this fire means it is threatening homes and Mandatory evacuations remain in effect for the area. The Old Fire began 5/31/2022 around 15:30.

ACCERT was deployed on 5/31/2022 at 17:00 and released at 21:00 as fire containment improved. ACCERT will remain on alert for 24 hours and may be activated again should the need arise.

This level requires no immediate response action by CERT volunteers. This is an advisory that CERT team leaders have been notified of an emergency management activity which may require CERT assistance during an incident. We will not have a mission at this level, but you should have your equipment (PPE) ready.  

Typical wildfire missions ACCERT may be tasked with include assisting Napa CART, communications, evacuation assistance and/or traffic control. Our current mission is to assist Napa CART with evacuations.
