The disaster preparedness program ensures that City forces can provide appropriate relief and rescue services following major disasters like earthquakes, floods, nuclear power accidents, hazardous material spills, civil disturbances, prolonged power outages, and wildland fires. Program goals are well-trained disaster response employees, citizens who can be self-sufficient within 72 hours following a disaster, and up-to-date disaster response plans.
One of the program's primary focus is having our citizens prepared for natural disasters. Are you and your loved ones prepared to be self-sufficient for up to 72 hours following a disaster? That is the minimum goal each SLO resident should constantly maintain.
To maximize your preparedness and safety, please review the following information:
- CPR and automated external defibrillators (AED)
- Homeowner's tool kit for preparedness
- Disaster preparedness for your home
- Business continuity plan development, and
- Community emergency response training (CERT).
- Ready, Set, Go; Wildfire Action Plan
