Why now? Because calamity can strike without warning. When it does, you want to be braced for it, with the ability to ride it out until emergency services are available. That could be a matter of hours or days. Self-sufficiency will be your most valuable asset.

Be proactive. Prepare today. Be ready with an emergency plan and supplies. Take preventative measures to minimize property damage. Arm yourself with vital information about response and recovery.

Stay informed. Having accurate information is critical, be sure the information you are getting comes from a trusted source. Opt-in to receive the city’s official emergency notifications from Alert SouthBayRegister to opt-in at AlertSouthBay.com or text ALERTSB to 888777.

What types of disasters? In our area, the events we’re most likely to face are: 

• earthquakes

• wildfires

• landslides

• extended power outages

• events that severely limit city resources 

Although we’ve been lucky not to experience a major earthquake; we have experienced pandemic shortages and longer than normal power outages. Being prepared for any one of these disasters will prepare you for all of them.
