Emergency Information

General information

Call 911 to report emergencies!

UC Merced and the National Park Service are available to all guests to assist with problems during your stay at the stations, regardless of your official affiliation. All field station guests must abide by the UC Merced Code of Conduct.

Guests are strongly encouraged to take a "go bag" when away from the station for any period of time. This bag should include anything you would need for a few days should the station be evacuated and you are unable to return.  The go bag should include crucial medications, passports and documents, cell phones and chargers, and anything else you might need for a few days.

Phones- All cabins have hardwired phones for local and toll-free calls, and long distance calls with a calling card. A pay phone is available on a cabin near the Pine Tree Market, on Chilnualna Falls Rd at the intersection with E Bruce Rd.  Only Verizon has limited cell coverage in Wawona.

 

Fire - Call 911

Evacuate and assemble at the SNRS Office at 7799 Chilnualna Falls Rd, if that location is safe. Once you are in a safe location, report your whereabouts to the station director at 209-628-5758.

If Wawona is being evacuated due to wildfire, we hope to have advanced notice but this is not always the case. Have your go-bag ready. Follow the directions of law enforcement and other emergency personnel. Once you are in a safe location, report your whereabouts to the station director at 209-628-5758.
