Are you Ready for a Natural Disaster or Emergency?

We have joined the California For All Movement in partnership with Listos California to help our community prepare for emergencies and disasters. With many of us still sheltering in place, it is a great time to create or update our emergency/disaster preparedness plans. Fire season is here and we can all help build a more resilient Santa Cruz County by preparing now.

Prepare for an Emergency in 5 Steps

Is your family ready for emergencies? From earthquakes to fires, we have learned in 2020 that life can be unpredictable. Follow these steps to be better prepared. If you are short on time, break it down into weekly activities to do by yourself, or with friends and family.

Volunteer For This Project

If you have an interest in assisting your neighbors, seniors and families in our community to prepare for emergencies we need you! Volunteers are needed to connect with community members over the phone or via zoom to coach them through creating their personal emergency plan. Training and tools are provided. Our goal is to help 11,000 people in Santa Cruz County develop a personalized emergency plan. We are especially in need of bilingual (English / Spanish) volunteers.
