Southern Emergency Access Route (S.E.A.R.) Info


The Southern Emergency Access Route (S.E.A.R.) is a proposed natural surface roadway, a dirt road, that, subject to voter approval, would be constructed to be safely navigated by passenger vehicles, law enforcement vehicles, and fire apparatus during an emergency. The SEAR will not be used for public transport, recreational, or other day to day use by any person or entity and is intended to be used only for emergency ingress and egress, maintenance/mitigation, and training. The SEAR will be access controlled with appropriate gates and security, as well as appropriate signage, locks, and monitoring. Ownership, maintenance, and use of the SEAR will be governed by the Genese Fire Protection District.
