The City Manager, as the Director of Emergency Services, has appointed the Fire Chief as the Emergency Services Coordinator.  With this appointment comes the responsibility for the Fire Department to coordinate all emergency preparedness activities within the City.  This includes development of an emergency plan, staff training, development of an emergency operations center, community preparedness information and coordination with the San Luis Obispo County Operational Area. 

Preparing yourself and your home is essential.  A good starting point for all disaster preparedness is to make sure you are prepared for 72 hours of self survival.  In other words, do you have enough food, water, medicine, batteries, cash, pet food, and other essential items that you can use in the absence of public utilities (electricity, water, and natural gas) for three or more days? 

To maximize your preparedness and safety, please review the following information.
