Are you Prepared if Disaster Strikes?

Most common to Stanislaus County are Natural Disasters involving floods, fire, freezes or heat emergencies. Chemical releases from spills or fires have also occurred, and other threats involving civil unrest, terrorism, chemical, biological, radioactive and/or nuclear exposure are also a possibility.

Having a plan in place that addresses your needs for at least 72 hours, as well as how you communicate with your family, shut off utilities if needed, provide first aid, and stay informed will increase your safety and chances for survival, should a disaster strike.
