Emergency Preparedness

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS IS AN ON-GOING EFFORT

Don't wait until after an emergency to prepare for an earthquake or other major disasters.

According to researchers at University of California, Irvine, California is long overdue for a major earthquake. As a result, the community is encouraged to always be prepared for a major disaster and to be self-sufficient for at least up to 5-7 days.

In the event of a large-scale earthquake, freeways and surface streets may be impassable and public services could be interrupted for days and months. Therefore, residents should be prepared with essential needs for an extended period of time, whether at work, home or on the road.
