How do I prepare for an emergency?
Emergency Responders may be unable to reach all citizens for various reasons and therefore it is essential that individuals and neighborhoods be prepared to be on their own for a minimum of 3 to 5 days. Information about survival kits, major threats and disaster myths is posted on Fire and Emergency Services Department website.
Can I receive alerts on my cell phone about local emergencies?
Yes, SoCoAlert is a service provided by the County will keep you informed of any action you may need to take during a local emergency.
